The Confederacy of 1ndependentSystems is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, public floggings, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 561 million Separatists are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.2%.

The powerhouse Separatist economy, worth 47.1 trillion Galactic Credits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Gambling, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 83,978 Galactic Credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 253,928 per year while the poor average 21,621, a ratio of 11.7 to 1.

Prison overcrowding is being addressed with a series of short sharp shocks, hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock", rare art has become a significant factor in negotiating all foreign trade agreements, and unwary hikers climbing the bluffs of Mount 1ndependentSystems City make great practice for foreign snipers. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low. 1ndependentSystems's national animal is the Acklay, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

1ndependentSystems is ranked 46,548th in the world and 137th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 73.43 Workforce Participation Rate.
