The 30 of ------------------------------ is a colossal, economically powerful nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads. Its hard-nosed, hard-working population of 6.234 billion are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, pro-business individuals is effectively ruled by the Department of Commerce, with areas such as the Environment and Social Welfare receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of All good People. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Information Technology industry.

Billions of 30s are being blown on orbital weapons development, citizens are regularly found digging for treasure in their gardens, Max Barry is this year's Miss ------------------------------, and Pinkerton agents are called in to forcibly break up white collar strikes. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. ------------------------------'s national animal is the 30, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is a major religion, and its currency is the 30.

------------------------------ is ranked 45th in the West Pacific and 3,592nd in the world for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 9 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
