The Republic of Color 0x3B is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, enslaved workforce, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.284 billion Color 0x3Bians 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 71.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Color 0x3Bian economy, worth 417 trillion Bits a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 127,193 Bits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 365,202 per year while the poor average 35,225, a ratio of 10.4 to 1.

Business meetings across the country are interrupted by the sound of squeaking whoopee-cushions, a PhD just ain't what it used to be, broken suspension systems are giving auto repair shops plenty of business, and women who can do math in their head are burned for witchcraft. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Color 0x3B's national animal is the Parrot, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Color 0x3B is ranked 21,324th in the world and 7th in 6 bit RGB for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 246.38 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
