The Polluted Utopia of Consumeistan is a huge, orderly nation, ruled by High Leader Johson Eden with an iron fist, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 887 million Consumeistanis 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Citadel City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 49.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Consumeistani economy, worth 141 trillion CSCS a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 159,097 CSCS, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 494,285 per year while the poor average 39,400, a ratio of 12.5 to 1.

There's no representation without taxation, prison reforms have replaced communal luaus with communal loos, the term cold case has taken on a very literal meaning, and diners regard burgers made from mechanically reclaimed cow protein as "proper meat". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Consumeistan's national animal is the Death-bot 3000, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Consumeistan is ranked 197,946th in the world and 8,283rd in The North Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 34.4 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
