The Huge Ego of 3LiT3 2 is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by an arm connected with an iron fist, and notable for its complete absence of social welfare. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 8.037 billion are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of state in the capital city. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 51%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, followed by Uranium Mining and Information Technology.
Fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets, the number of children one can have is restricted by law, prosecutors routinely call transplant doctors as 'expert witnesses' in burglary cases, and the military has had to quell a recent insurrection by uninsured revolutionaries. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. 3LiT3 2's national animal is the Moth, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the mathematical textbooks.
