The Spacetime Commune of Haute-Outremer is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Geoffrey Toussaint with an iron fist, and remarkable for its compulsory military service and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 1.817 billion Outremerians 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 relatively small, moralistic, pro-business government is dominated by the Department of Spirituality, although Defense and Law & Order are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Montbel. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 9.9%.

The very strong Haute-Outremerian economy, worth 127 trillion Lumières a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Cheese Exports, and Gambling. Average income is 70,278 Lumières, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 233,912 per year while the poor average 15,734, a ratio of 14.9 to 1.

Graverobbers claim they're acting within the interest of 'scientific preservation', Haute-Outremer has designated Montbel as its capital city, Geoffrey Toussaint has just been declared ruler of Haute-Outremer in an international press conference, and Cosmism has been named as Haute-Outremer's national religion. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Haute-Outremer's national animal is the Outremerian Wolf, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is Cosmism.

Haute-Outremer is ranked 228,787th in the world and 38th in Coldonia for Smartest Citizens, with 13.57 quips per hour.
