The Queen's State of 24 Hour is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by the Governor with a fair hand, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, absence of drug laws, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 23.928 billion Around the Clockers live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Industry, although Education is also considered important, while Law & Order and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital Heights. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.7%.

The very strong 24 Hourian economy, worth a remarkable 1,141 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is quite specialized and led by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Soda Sales, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 47,714 betales, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 462,624 per year while the poor average 237, a ratio of 1,948 to 1.

A major religion has been named as 24 Hour's national religion, 24 Hour has designated Capital Heights as its capital city, rural communities are all but disenfranchised as politicians focus all their attention on winning the deciding urban votes, and The Governor has just been declared ruler of 24 Hour in an international press conference. Crime is a major problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. 24 Hour's national animal is the deer, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

24 Hour is ranked 24,663rd in the world and 3rd in Ethiopia for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring zero on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
