The Dictatorship of BigRed49 is a massive, pleasant nation, remarkable for its avant-garde cinema, suspicion of poets, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed population of 1.399 billion BigRed49ians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 36.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The BigRed49ian economy, worth 81.0 trillion Monies a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 57,895 Monies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Drawing straws has given way to straw polls, cinemas play art-house movies to ever-shrinking audiences as film critics rule the industry, road signs are getting harder to read under layers of knitted woolen cardigans, and flash floods that dams could have controlled regularly ravage small towns in mountain valleys. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. BigRed49's national animal is the Spider, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

BigRed49 is ranked 29,457th in the world and 2nd in Greater Cyngland Armed Forces for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 4,370.64 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
