“Everything can be resolved with firepower”

The Confederacy of Gun-Toting Animals is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by President Colt with a fair hand, and notable for its complete lack of prisons. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 4.525 billion live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.
There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, liberal individuals devotes most of its attentions to Defence, 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 Boomfield. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining industries.
All prisons have been eliminated, reports of arson have doubled since the introduction of a privatised fire protection service, tourists outnumber citizens two to one, and young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. Gun-Toting Animals's national animal is the Manbearpig, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the Bullet.
