The Barren Desert City of Indatris is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Gary Murray with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed population of 2.805 billion Indatrians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is mainly concerned with Defence, although Law & Order and Commerce are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Indatris. The average income tax rate is 78%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry.

A new generation of aquariumless hotels are being built under government supervision, mining safety laws are often more expensive than what's being mined, naturists are jailed regularly for indecent exposure, and politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is moderate. Indatris's national animal is the Tarantula Hawk Wasp, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Copper Esede.

Indatris is ranked 4th in Unified Skaian Syndicate of Rulers and 29,133rd in the world for Most Cultured, scoring 6 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
