The Megacorporation of Country of CityTowne is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by CCTCorp Brand CEObot 647 with an iron fist, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, flagrant waste-dumping, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 2.553 billion easily manipulated citizens are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Country of CityTowne City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.7%.

The frighteningly efficient CityTownian economy, worth 432 trillion CCTCS a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 169,334 CCTCS, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,538,335 per year while the poor average 2,145, a ratio of 716 to 1.

Wounded veterans can only get prosthetics if they agree to become walking billboards for the arms industry, card collectors duel to the death, CityTownian farm salmon are known for being both horribly diseased and remarkably acrobatic, and the moon's craters are more numerous every day. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Country of CityTowne's national animal is the Axolotl, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Capitalism.

Country of CityTowne is ranked 205,600th in the world and 355th in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Least Corrupt Governments, with 22.38 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
