The Federation of Defender 3 is a massive, economically powerful nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its suspicion of poets. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 3.413 billion are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt, pro-business government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Commerce, Defence, and Law & Order. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Defender 3 City. The average income tax rate is 49%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing industries.

Citizens are only allowed to view government-approved TV shows, cheese has become the new icon of political dissent, visitors to the famed rainforests are instead taken to vast furniture factories, and curtailed social programs have left many citizens bereft of any safety net. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling. Defender 3's national animal is the Quail, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, its national religion is a major religion, and its currency is the Imaginary Pinniped.

Defender 3 is ranked 1st in Kyzikos and 1,292nd in the world for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 15 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
