The Republic of 4SQN is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its fear of technology, aversion to nipples, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, devout population of 4.556 billion 4SQNians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The large, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 64.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming 4SQNian economy, worth 431 trillion pesos a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 94,647 pesos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Preservative-laden 4SQNian cheeses will be as edible when archaeologists dig them up next millennium, the people consider response to rudeness to be an acceptable casus belli, more sidewalk is dedicated to animals than people, and it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 4SQN's national animal is the Eagle, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

4SQN is ranked 28,574th in the world and 1,428th in Osiris for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 4,350.85 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
