The Smoking Rubble of A Bombed-Out Crater is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its punitive income tax rates, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 703 million Crater-dwellers enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of An Especially Large Pile of Rubble. The average income tax rate is 78.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Craterese economy, worth 74.8 trillion cases of cartridges a year, is quite specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 106,467 cases of cartridges, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Doctors who mutter "Oh my God" often lose their medical license, women who walk into the ladies' changing room are accused of being Peeping Toms, election ballot papers are so long that unused ones are recycled as toilet roll, and government crews work tirelessly to retake the suburbs from organized packs of raccoons. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. A Bombed-Out Crater's national animal is the radscorpion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

A Bombed-Out Crater is ranked 20,685th in the world and 637th in the South Pacific for Smartest Citizens, with 61.22 quips per hour.
