The Glorious Gold Dictatorship of Controlitia is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by The Tyrant Grande with an iron fist, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, enslaved workforce, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 13.018 billion Contrae are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The tiny, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sargobad. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 2.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Tyrantized economy, worth a remarkable 2,617 trillion Puffs of Air a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 201,085 Puffs of Air, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,326,686 per year while the poor average 11,804, a ratio of 112 to 1.

Wanting a better life for your child is prohibited by a clause in the criminal code, former bars are desperately trying to re-brand themselves as cafés, competing private ambulances racing to be the first to traffic accidents are a major cause of road accidents, and the practice of capital punishment proves divisive. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Controlitia's national animal is the Corpse, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Tyrantism.

Controlitia is ranked 3,273rd in the world and 16th in 10000 Islands for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 112.38 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
