The Rogue Nation of MSN 0 is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Highlander with an iron fist, and renowned for its frequent executions, pith helmet sales, and suspicion of poets. The cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.498 billion MSN 0ians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mitchell. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 68.4%.

The frighteningly efficient MSN 0ian economy, worth 396 trillion francs a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 158,771 francs, with the richest citizens earning 5.6 times as much as the poorest.

High school boys are required to pass vigorous self-mastery and sensitivity training to graduate, the government raises tariffs on a weekly basis, clumsy self-injury is a viable claim in modern compensation culture, and sheepish teenagers are making eye contact with their parents for the first time in a decade during state-enforced 'no-phones hour'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. MSN 0's national animal is the swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Cards.

MSN 0 is ranked 26,329th in the world and 317th in NationStates for Largest Black Market, with 11.1 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
