The Colony of 199sqn is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, fear of technology, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.654 billion 199sqnians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Healthcare, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 50.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The 199sqnian economy, worth 94.8 trillion guilders a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 57,338 guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

199sqn's soft-touch approach to diplomacy has made it known as the 'push-over' of the region, theatre audiences often need a telescope to see the stage, motorbike jousters live young and die fast, and teenage girls worry that they'll be unpopular if their skirts aren't short enough. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 199sqn's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

199sqn is ranked 112,844th in the world and 1,959th in The East Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 94.8 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
