The Disputed Territories of Insulin is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, strictly enforced bedtime, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 384 million executives are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Spirituality, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 10.8%.

The very strong executive economy, worth 25.0 trillion vials a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Pizza Delivery, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 65,229 vials, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 206,816 per year while the poor average 15,685, a ratio of 13.2 to 1.

Immigrants who don't like the taste of executive Turnip Chips are immediately deported, one lone government employee can be seen hunting for the elusive stray white dog, the only crimes that get investigated are doughnut heists, and the domestic version of the Paddington Bear movie was a far shorter and bloodier tale. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force. Insulin's national animal is the diabetic, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Insulin is ranked 226,708th in the world and 396th in Refugia for Most Income Equality, scoring 7.58 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
