The Sultanate of 90024 is a colossal, efficient nation, notable for its pith helmet sales, ritual sacrifices, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 6.882 billion 90024ians 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 government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 64.9%.

The frighteningly efficient 90024ian economy, worth a remarkable 1,023 trillion 9003s a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 148,762 9003s, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

The nationalistic national anthem inspires citizens to literally spit at foreigners, TV coverage of music festivals consists mostly of backstage interviews, liberals and conservatives try to disqualify each other's candidates on the grounds that "their ideas would never work in the real world", and appendix transplant figures have recently doubled. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 90024's national animal is the 9003, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

90024 is ranked 81,570th in the world and 1,511th in the Rejected Realms for Most Avoided, scoring 2.92 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
