The Community of Bread 919 is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The cynical population of 2.976 billion anarcho-communists are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 43.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped anarcho-communist economy, worth 99.4 trillion mutual aids a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Uranium Mining, Retail, Pizza Delivery, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 33,396 mutual aids, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Fair-weather fans talk during plays while die-hard theatre enthusiasts stay at home, more sidewalk is dedicated to animals than people, stony-faced prosecutors play loud gangster rap music during court proceedings, and back-alley circumcision clinics are popping up all over the nation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Bread 919's national animal is the tabby cat, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Bread 919 is ranked 99,960th in the world and 217th in Jregoria for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 2,097.98 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
