The Soul-Rockin' Beat of AWOL Christian Soldiers is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Frank Pope with an iron fist, and remarkable for its enslaved workforce, compulsory military service, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 5.188 billion soldiers 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of an undisclosed location. The average income tax rate is 36.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The military economy, worth 266 trillion beads a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. Average income is 51,274 beads, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students, criminals rejoice in the streets as the entire police force is sent away on a training retreat, military strategists are questioning the wisdom of subsidizing the economies of sworn enemies, and the military invades any neighboring nation with the gall to criticize its policies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force. AWOL Christian Soldiers's national animal is the Rock Dove and its national religion is The Beat.

AWOL Christian Soldiers is ranked 170,535th in the world and 7th in The Dumpster Behind the Coffee Shop for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -9.27 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
