The 25 of ------------------------- is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and remarkable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.279 billion -------------------------ians enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, pro-business individuals concentrates mainly on Commerce, although Education and Defence are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zemnaya Svoboda. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Automobile Manufacturing and Retail.

Citizens who leave the country are officially classed as traitors, guns are banned, homeless people are frequently charged with trespassing on public property, and the military has had to quell a recent insurrection by uninsured revolutionaries. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. -------------------------'s national animal is the 25, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is Plentiful Rum, and its currency is the 25.

------------------------- is ranked 23rd in The North Pacific and 1,502nd in the world for Shortest Average Lifespan, scoring 43 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
