The Republic of Code to the Universe is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, compulsory military service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 468 million Code to the Universeans 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 Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 30.4%.

The sizeable but inefficient Code to the Universean economy, worth 20.8 trillion Galaxies a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Information Technology, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 44,353 Galaxies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.0 times as much as the poorest.

Lending money has become a major liability, foreign governments are threatened if they so much as mention the word "election", 50% of adverts on children's television are for clothes made of cotton wool, and cassocked priests and choirboys believe that what happens behind closed doors stays behind closed doors. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Code to the Universe's national animal is the Unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Code to the Universe is ranked 57,723rd in the world and 2,105th in the South Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 92.74 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
