The Federation of Defender 3 is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and renowned for its ritual sacrifices, compulsory military service, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 7.985 billion Defender 3ians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.
The minute, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Defender 3 City. Income tax is unheard of.
The frighteningly efficient Defender 3ian economy, worth a remarkable 2,393 trillion Imaginary Pinnipeds a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Soda Sales industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 299,772 Imaginary Pinnipeds, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,347,088 per year while the poor average 41,200, a ratio of 32.7 to 1.
Organ donation is compulsory, a survey of the nation's rivers and children has shown that pesticide levels are at an all-time regional high, political activists are routinely executed, and citizens applying for their first jobs face fierce competition from the homeless. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Defender 3's national animal is the Quail, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is a major religion.
