The Federal Republic of I Always Choose The Last Option is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its vat-grown people, aversion to nipples, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.997 billion I Always Choose The Last Optionians 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 enormous, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Administration, although Industry, Healthcare, and Environment are also considered important, while Welfare isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital City. The average income tax rate is 97.4%.

The frighteningly efficient I Always Choose The Last Optionian economy, worth a remarkable 1,300 trillion Currencies a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Retail, Gambling, Furniture Restoration, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 260,184 Currencies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The endangered saltwater humpback National Animal is only seen in captivity programs, schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students, government agents scour baking periodicals for subversive recipes, and a government program is underway to revitalize I Always Choose The Last Option's beaches. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. I Always Choose The Last Option's national animal is the National Animal, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

I Always Choose The Last Option is ranked 144,605th in the world and 4th in TERRY for Most Average, scoring 31.19 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
