The Lurking Mailbox Peepers of D016 is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Bill with an iron fist, and renowned for its ritual sacrifices, frequent executions, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 7.87 billion Skyrockets are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Danoff. The average income tax rate is 49.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Taffyish economy, worth 984 trillion Banks a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Soda Sales, and Information Technology. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 125,103 Banks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Industry tycoons rarely hide their misdeeds due to the government's habit of bailing them out, school history books often refer to Bill as "that imperialist pig dog", the government funds private schools for intellectually gifted children, and every day at 4am Skyrockets wake to pray for the sun to rise. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. D016's national animal is the Cheetah, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Afternoon Delight.

D016 is ranked 271,851st in the world and 95th in Windows for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -10.28 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
