The Republic of Codename4 is a massive, genial nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, frequent executions, and ritual sacrifices. The hard-working, cynical, devout population of 4.619 billion Codename4ians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The minute government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Education. The average income tax rate is 6.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Codename4ian economy, worth 147 trillion baht a year, is quite specialized and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Gambling. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 32,041 baht, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The "boy who cried wolf" policy makes sick people reluctant to call an ambulance, crop circles are intently studied by investigators with questionable merits, the government's fruit business reeks of rotting produce and corruption, and pareidolic SETI scientists swear there's a message from aliens hidden within pi. Crime is moderate, probably because of the absence of a police force. Codename4's national animal is the sheep, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Codename4 is ranked 199,832nd in the world and 4,135th in Artificial Solar System for Most Developed, scoring 50.59 on the Human Development Index.
