The Federal Republic of I Always Choose The Last Option is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory vegetarianism, lack of airports, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 10.726 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 and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital City. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient I Always Choose The Last Optionian economy, worth a remarkable 3,632 trillion Currencies a year, is quite specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Retail, Furniture Restoration, Uranium Mining, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 338,635 Currencies, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,356,567 per year while the poor average 56,719, a ratio of 23.9 to 1.

Paraplegics are told to walk it off, citizens who become homeless are immediately executed, the government's official position on invasive species is 'who cares?', and the police force is rumoured to be made up of evil shadows with no souls. Crime is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, 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 38,293rd in the world and 3rd in TERRY for Most Secular, with 33.48 Atheism Rate.
