The Colony of Fiveist is a massive, safe nation, notable for its frequent executions, compulsory gun ownership, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.864 billion Fiveistians 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 government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 19.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Fiveistian economy, worth 138 trillion pesos a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 48,465 pesos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, Tetris has been banned for its graphic violent content, unemployed political consultants and advertisers spend every election night weeping for the good old days, and immigrants who don't like the taste of Fiveistian Turnip Chips are immediately deported. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Fiveist's national animal is the parrot, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Fiveist is ranked 28,539th in the world and 52nd in Crystal Falls for Most Primitive, scoring 68.57 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
