The Girls in Convertibles of I 37 is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Eisenhower with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, free-roaming dinosaurs, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.444 billion Highwaymen 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of San Antonio. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 37.6%.

The all-consuming Roadworthy economy, worth 341 trillion tolls a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Pizza Delivery. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 99,228 tolls, with the richest citizens earning 8.9 times as much as the poorest.

Babies are a small but significant export, rumor has it that Eisenhower has won three lotteries in a row, the country is preparing for war, and airship use has soared while property values beneath their routes have plummeted. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, possibly because it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many regulations. I 37's national animal is the Road Runner, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Constructionist.

I 37 is ranked 216,846th in the world and 176th in Texas for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -10.95 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
