The Confederate States of Pandemicia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by President Featherston with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, parental licensing program, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 10.004 billion Pandemicians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.
The minute, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Richmond. Income tax is unheard of.
The frighteningly efficient Pandemician economy, worth a remarkable 4,362 trillion Confederate Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an amazing 436,085 Confederate Dollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,241,565 per year while the poor average 17,356, a ratio of 186 to 1.
Long arduous trials are held for the most trivial of offences, the government seizes all major gold finds, reports of arson have doubled since the introduction of a privatised fire protection service, and Cougar sanctuaries have been taken over by hydraulic fracturing sites. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Pandemicia's national animal is the Cougar, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Christianity.
