The Rogue Nation of Official-Anonymous is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its infamous sell-swords, state-planned economy, and disturbing lack of elderly people. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 533 million Secret Citizen's 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 66.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Official-Anonymousian economy, worth 31.4 trillion Bitcoins 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 large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Uranium Mining, Book Publishing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Information Technology. 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 58,954 Bitcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A murderous reputation can revitalise a flagging celebrity career, the dish 'poisson avec poison' is only available on the black market, urban graffiti is hand-calligraphed in perfectly kerned elegant fonts, and six-year-old children playing dress-up are viewed with suspicion. Crime is almost non-existent. Official-Anonymous's national animal is the Computer bug, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Official-Anonymous is ranked 39,950th in the world and 38th in Karma for Largest Black Market, with 4.25 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
