The Republic of 62SQN is a massive, genial nation, remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads, state-planned economy, and ritual sacrifices. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 1.124 billion 62SQNians 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 large, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Spirituality, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 65.1%.

The sizeable but inefficient 62SQNian economy, worth 56.6 trillion francs 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 Information Technology, Book Publishing, Pizza Delivery, and Furniture Restoration. 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 50,342 francs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

Scenic mountain valleys are flooded with water as damming projects get underway, the nation's athletes must all cross the finish line together while holding hands, no one over the age of 35 has the slightest clue what is going on, and Eagle is one of the most popular forenames in 62SQN. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 62SQN's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

62SQN is ranked 53,417th in the world and 1,534th in The East Pacific for Most Influential, scoring 260 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
