The Stratocratic Republic of Honourbound is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Grand General Maximillian Rodgers with a fair hand, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, national health service, and irreverence towards religion. The democratic, humorless population of 1.415 billion Honourbound are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government prioritizes Defense, with Administration, Education, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ausdaeur. The average income tax rate is 82.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Honourbound economy, worth 193 trillion Venaris a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 136,827 Venaris, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All industry is owned and run by the government, crime suspects are forced to submit to blood testing, decongestants have replaced Venaris in street transactions, and the tax agency is feared more than serial killers and terrorists. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Honourbound's national animal is the Thunderbird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Honourbound is ranked 60,341st in the world and 1,710th in the Pacific for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 3,575.16 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
