The Bread winners of Necessicity is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by The plug with an even hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, absence of drug laws, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 21.559 billion Bread winners enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, liberal, pro-business individuals is solely concerned with Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wasteland. Income tax is unheard of.

The large but stagnant Bread winner economy, worth 364 trillion glocks a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is led by the Gambling industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Information Technology. Average income is 16,905 glocks, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 118,552 per year while the poor average 824, a ratio of 143 to 1.

Rabbits are known to spontaneously explode without warning, blackface performers claim they are being deliberately ironic, fraternities are notorious for drunken hooliganism, and there's never a spare chair in the retirement home. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Necessicity's national animal is the white line, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is White line fever.

Necessicity is ranked 127,246th in the world and 4,069th in Osiris for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 97.05 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
