The Numbers of 8088 is a massive, socially progressive nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape. Its hard-working, intelligent population of 2.373 billion enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
The small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Commerce. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eighton. The average income tax rate is 18%, but much higher for the wealthy. A healthy private sector is led by the Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Furniture Restoration industries.
Eights are considered a delicacy, the government awards prizes to television shows featuring stereotype-breaking minority roles, the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, and the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas. Crime is moderate. 8088's national animal is the eight, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the number.
