The Bounty Hunter of Power Suit Samus is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Aran with an even hand, and notable for its pith helmet sales, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 3.432 billion Samusians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Zebes. The average income tax rate is 50.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Samusian economy, worth 626 trillion credits 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Soda Sales, and Retail. 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 an impressive 182,611 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Protestors are soaking piles of credits in blood to make a point about government incomes, marine biology students are shocked to discover that a whale is a mammal, the delay between passed legislation and real world implementation is often a decade or longer, and science centers and state of the art laboratories are ubiquitous. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Power Suit Samus's national animal is the metroid, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Cards.

Power Suit Samus is ranked 37,287th in the world and 14th in Warzone Sandbox for Most Valuable International Artwork, with 4.75 Bank.
