The San Fran-Oakland Bay Bridge of I 80 is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Eisenhower with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 6.982 billion Highwaymen 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 government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lincoln. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 48.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Roadworthy economy, worth 609 trillion tolls a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Uranium Mining, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is 87,321 tolls, with the richest citizens earning 6.6 times as much as the poorest.

It is typical to be greeted by a string of curse words in Roadworthy restaurants, laws are littered with references to cheese, sex offenders find themselves cut off from the ability to repeat their crimes, and elected officials often serve for decades in a single term. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. I 80's national animal is the Murcielago, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Constructionist.

I 80 is ranked 71,886th in the world and 5th in California for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 6.6 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
