The Republic of BigRed12 is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ban on automobiles, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 1.98 billion BigRed12ians 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Industry, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 40.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong BigRed12ian economy, worth 102 trillion pesos a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Retail. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 51,985 pesos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Travellers are often forcibly evicted by torch-bearing mobs, thrift shops are closing their doors, no-one can foil the ambitions of Big Aluminium, and newspapers may not print any negative stories about the government. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. BigRed12's national animal is the wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

BigRed12 is ranked 90,525th in the world and 2,950th in the Rejected Realms for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 1,739.98 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
