The Oppressed Peoples of Inquisitive Examinations is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, keen interest in outer space, and ritual sacrifices. The democratic, devout population of 3.619 billion Inquisitive Examinationsians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 50.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Inquisitive Examinationsian economy, worth 176 trillion guilders a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. Average income is 48,641 guilders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Pre-takeoff checks last longer than the flights themselves, the elderly don't know who the dickens adorns the face of newly-issued banknotes, citizens wouldn't recognise Leader if they passed one another on the street, and referenda are banned by law and the Parliament has absolute control of the legislative process. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Inquisitive Examinations's national animal is the squirrel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Inquisitive Examinations is ranked 59,677th in the world and 3,418th in Balder for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 111.55 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
