The Mercy of the Idol of Angel50 is a massive, orderly nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.753 billion Angel50ians 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, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. The average income tax rate is 45.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Angel50ian economy, worth 113 trillion guilders 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 large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Retail, Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Gambling. 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 64,873 guilders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Political shows are fit for purpose, it is not politically correct to suspect that a serially convicted burglar might steal again, children who display even minimal sporting aptitude are immediately assigned a personal trainer, and the relatives of suicide victims tend to be angry rather than sad. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Angel50's national animal is the lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Angel50 is ranked 128,141st in the world and 2,191st in Alliance of Supreme Powers for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 875.34 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
