The Most Serene Republic of BigRed56 is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The quiet, industrious population of 3.936 billion BigRed56ians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 34.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong BigRed56ian economy, worth 223 trillion Latinums a year, is dominated by the Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Furniture Restoration, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 56,731 Latinums, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The "boy who cried wolf" policy makes sick people reluctant to call an ambulance, weathermen are being arrested for attempting to read the future, the "feminist protest" defence is increasingly common for cases of armed robbery, and counselors have to sign pledges supporting gay rights before they can speak to any patients. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. BigRed56's national animal is the Python, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

BigRed56 is ranked 72,792nd in the world and 1st in Munich Pakt for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 2,680.05 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
