The Borderlands of Observation Post 13 is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The Moralist with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, disturbing lack of elderly people, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 1.08 billion Observers have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Starport. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 78.0%.

The frighteningly efficient On Deck economy, worth 181 trillion credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 167,832 credits, with the richest citizens earning 7.9 times as much as the poorest.

The government is coughing up funds for lung cancer victims, the military has gone fission for more funding, remote-control hang-gliding scarecrows patrol the skies to keep songbirds from leaving the nation's borders, and the poor are forced into bankruptcy by their energy bills. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Observation Post 13's national animal is the Carbon Monkey, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Moralist Regime.

Observation Post 13 is ranked 170,944th in the world and 136th in Palatine for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 93.57 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
