The Rogue Nation of 1st US Infantry Division is a massive, orderly nation, renowned for its ritual sacrifices, soft-spoken computers, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.162 billion 1st US Infantry Divisionians 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."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fort Jay. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 24.4%.

The strong 1st US Infantry Divisionian economy, worth 87.8 trillion Rations a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 75,599 Rations, with the richest citizens earning 5.8 times as much as the poorest.

Quiet professionalism has returned to the nation's armed forces, it is mandatory to learn evolution in schools, citizens often ask "what has information technology ever done for us?", and Leader has been known to threaten dissenting citizens with a machine gun at press conferences. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 1st US Infantry Division's national animal is the M3 Grease Gun, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

1st US Infantry Division is ranked 115,077th in the world and 4th in West Antartica for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring 1,126.03 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
