The Free Land of Individualist Pursuit is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Century of the Self with a fair hand, and notable for its deadly medical pandemics, flagrant waste-dumping, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 3.963 billion Atomized Individuals live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Displaced Tradition. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Atomized Individualistian economy, worth 883 trillion Clownbucks a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Gambling, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an amazing 222,979 Clownbucks, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,522,173 per year while the poor average 11,833, a ratio of 128 to 1.

No one is worried about government policies any more, people are often woken up by rubbish music, a shocking number of estate planners are beneficiaries of their clients' wills, and the news is showing footage of Century of the Self bullying an old man to the point of tears. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Individualist Pursuit's national animal is the Consoomer, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Saturn Control Matrix.

Individualist Pursuit is ranked 257,486th in the world and 6,935th in Osiris for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -34.21 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
