The Cascade Island of 95X is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Don W Pushman with an even hand, and renowned for its ban on automobiles, national health service, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 31.658 billion 95Xers are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Public Transport. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pacific City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient 95X economy, worth a remarkable 6,102 trillion Transfers a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Retail, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 192,762 Transfers, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 976,953 per year while the poor average 21,098, a ratio of 46.3 to 1.

Fifty years of pension funds can disappear in half a second, schoolchildren are arrested for possessing sidewalk chalk without a permit, girls who wear lipstick are berated for pandering to male gazes, and fitness to teach sport is proven by urinating the furthest up a wall. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. 95X's national animal is the animal, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

95X is ranked 3,688th in the world and 14th in Atlantian Oceania for Largest Mining Sector, scoring 12,237.9 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
