The People's Republic of 90012 is a colossal, efficient nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, avowedly heterosexual populace, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 6.864 billion 90012ians 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. The average income tax rate is 69.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient 90012ian economy, worth 807 trillion 9003s a year, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 117,675 9003s, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Studio executives abandon tragic stories of star-crossed lovers because "it's been done", popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs, the masses are surrendering their civil liberties without complaint for the sake of shopping convenience, and disadvantaged neighbourhoods have become no-go areas after sundown. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 90012's national animal is the 9003, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

90012 is ranked 168,932nd in the world and 1st in Republican Army for Smartest Citizens, with 24.72 quips per hour.
