The 25 of ------------------------- is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, public floggings, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 14.489 billion -------------------------ians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zemnaya Svoboda. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient -------------------------ian economy, worth a remarkable 3,451 trillion 25s a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Retail, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 238,191 25s, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,810,797 per year while the poor average 8,690, a ratio of 208 to 1.

The government's only official statement on the burning down of Zemnaya Svoboda was that 'they shouldn't have been so careless', euthanasia is legal, birth rates have hit an all-time low, and citizens are enjoying a recent large cut in taxes. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. -------------------------'s national animal is the 25, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Plentiful Rum.

------------------------- is ranked 4,798th in the world and 225th in The North Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 379.86 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
