The Positronic Brain State of Mister Data is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Doctor Noonian Soong with an even hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, zero percent divorce rate, and soft-spoken computers. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 8.55 billion Mister Data are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Bridge. The average income tax rate is 49.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Mister Datum economy, worth 260 trillion calculations a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Woodchip Exports, Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 30,443 calculations, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Young people suspect their parents might be a little bit stupid, military pilots spend more time scraping feathers off their engines than flying their aircraft, civil servants are no longer allowed to cross their t's, and the institution of marriage is held sacred and strictly enforced. Crime is totally unknown. Mister Data's national animal is the emoticon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is the United Federation of Planets.

Mister Data is ranked 144,364th in the world and 5th in Star Trek for Most Pro-Market, scoring -77 on the Rand Index.
