The Merciful and Just Monarch 👑 of Compound Light Microscope is a massive, genial nation, ruled by King Alphonse Yusuf Spiritus with an iron fist, and remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 4.853 billion Compound Light Microscopeans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Alexandria Innovation of Knowledge. The average income tax rate is 97.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Compound Light Microscopean economy, worth 657 trillion Diamond Rings a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 135,492 Diamond Rings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Ambitious "businessmen" use their children to sell and advertise their products, coffee-addicted citizens look forward to baristas getting their name wrong at local coffee shops, the nation's infamous boot camp is more brutal than most battlefields, and women mime their gynaecological symptoms with hand-puppets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Compound Light Microscope's national animal is the Majestic Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Islam but all religions are tolerated.

Compound Light Microscope is ranked 142,421st in the world and 7th in Union of the Kind Ones for Most Primitive, scoring -218.31 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
