The Rogue Nation of Machine City of Zero One is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Deus Ex Machina with an even hand, and renowned for its digital currency, smutty television, and enforced nudity. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 3.246 billion Machines are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zero-One. The average income tax rate is 36.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Post Human economy, worth 781 trillion $botcoins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 240,628 $botcoins, with the richest citizens earning 5.1 times as much as the poorest.

Kids these days know how to throw a proper punch, bemused schoolkids colour in their favourite quadratic equations with crayons, new government leaflets tell coeliac children to eat more crisps, and crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters. Crime is totally unknown. Machine City of Zero One's national animal is the Kangaroomba, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Singularity.

Machine City of Zero One is ranked 14,905th in the world and 25th in Greater Dienstad for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 8,533.45 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
