The Mechanism of Cult of Extinction is a colossal, efficient nation, renowned for its compulsory vegetarianism, prohibition of alcohol, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.497 billion human resources 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 is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Spirituality, Industry, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Environment and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the End. The average income tax rate is 91.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient utilized economy, worth a remarkable 2,708 trillion credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 318,807 credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Tens of thousands of human resources rock the night away at the annual SuperLob, calling out of the blue has become taboo, remote-control hang-gliding scarecrows patrol the skies to keep songbirds from leaving the nation's borders, and family trees become bare as entire branches are lopped off. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cult of Extinction's national animal is the rat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is the great machine.

Cult of Extinction is ranked 209,217th in the world and 1st in Island of Extinction for Longest Average Lifespans, with 25.18 Years.
