The Jingoistic States of Armstrongs Landing is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Prime Minister Gabriel Armstrong with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful population of 21.505 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 tiny government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education, Administration, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Miss Fortune Promontory. The average income tax rate is 3.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Armstrongs Landingian economy, worth a remarkable 5,378 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 250,083 Rallods, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens who plan overseas vacations are barred from running for political office, bounty hunters have been dispatched to hunt down rogue bounty hunters, strip mining of rare earth metals is up while back problems are down, and the Great Armstrongs Landingian Melting Pot boils out ethnic heritage. Crime is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Armstrongs Landing's national animal is the Shrike, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Armstrongs Landing is ranked 205,222nd in the world and 11th in Coalition of Sovereign Nations for Lowest Crime Rates, with 27.47 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
