The Angelus Velocitas Eradicato of Project Independence is a gargantuan, safe nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 11.628 billion Project Independenceans 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of AVE Command. The average income tax rate is 78.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Project Independencean economy, worth 913 trillion Halicarnassuses a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 78,597 Halicarnassuses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Torture is commonly used to extract information from suspected criminals, the studies of art and philosophy are banned, fur coats have become the latest fashion trend, and a typical fast food menu item could serve a small army. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Project Independence's national animal is the White Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Imperialian Christianity.
