The Jingoistic States of Armstrongs Landing is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Prime Minister Gabriel Armstrong with an even hand, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, otherworldly petting zoo, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful population of 19.772 billion Armstrongers have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Miss Fortune Promontory. The average income tax rate is 47.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Armstrongs Landingian economy, worth a remarkable 4,952 trillion Rallods a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 250,468 Rallods, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

The wealthiest parts of the country receive the most government spending, the government is more interested in identifying problems than fixing them, undergrads find their professors' mushroom experiments less psychedelic than expected, and the country routinely whitewashes uncomfortable parts of its history. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Armstrongs Landing's national animal is the Shrike, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Armstrongs Landing is ranked 12,152nd in the world and 1st in Coalition of Sovereign Nations for Most Influential, scoring 2,904 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
