The Twin Smokestacks of Semi Truckers is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 21.846 billion Semi Truckersians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it is effectively ruled by the Department of Law & Order, with areas such as Social Equality and Religion & Spirituality receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Semi Truckers City. The average income tax rate is 84%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Automobile Manufacturing industry.

Bush babys with strange deformities like three eyes and tentacles have been seen prancing through the countryside where industrial waste is dumped, frequent fliers are obliged to submit to invasive security procedures by government security, private business has started paving paradises and putting up parking lots, and tombstones are ten feet high to accommodate the names of inhabitants. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Semi Truckers's national animal is the bush baby, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the dollar.

Semi Truckers is ranked 23rd in Free States of Gaia and 111,422nd in the world for Most Cultured, scoring -53 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
