The Rogue Nation of MSN34 is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Highlander with an even hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, punitive income tax rates, and compulsory gun ownership. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 3.211 billion MSN34ians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Khanateq. The average income tax rate is 74.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient MSN34ian economy, worth 534 trillion pesos a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 166,540 pesos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Foreign leaders who don't applaud Highlander's speeches are regarded as enemies of MSN34, binoculars sales are at an all-time high, mothers drive their college-graduate children to work, and the government tells its citizens to 'forgive and forget'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. MSN34's national animal is the turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Cards.

MSN34 is ranked 28,638th in the world and 7th in Greater Dienstad for Most Conservative, scoring 80.25 on the Bush-Santorum Dawning Terror Index.
