The 26 of -------------------------- is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by Bert d'Holomeus de Riemstagrad with an iron fist, and renowned for its public floggings, enslaved workforce, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 14.442 billion Tsjk are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Industry, with Defense, Education, and Public Transport also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Riemstagrad. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 1.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Tsjk economy, worth a remarkable 3,158 trillion 26s a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Soda Sales, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 218,711 26s, with the richest citizens earning 6.6 times as much as the poorest.

Wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms, muscular women are banned from competing in sporting competitions, discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is illegal, and being impolite in public is punishable by heavy fines. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. --------------------------'s national animal is the 26, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Heavy Metal.

-------------------------- is ranked 25,619th in the world and 984th in The East Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 4,383.64 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
