The GV Corporal of Random One is a gargantuan, safe nation, renowned for its public floggings, parental licensing program, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 18.94 billion Random Oneans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 49.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Random Onean economy, worth a remarkable 7,764 trillion Pool Gameses 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, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Retail, 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 an amazing 409,964 Pool Gameses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.9 times as much as the poorest.

High-tech infantry rifles automatically reload when the soldier shoots outside the screen of their helmet HUD, dealers go from pushing drugs to pushing up daisies, the people are famous throughout the region for their bleached-white teeth, and dinosaur breeders have a yabba-dabba-doo gay old time in Random One. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Random One's national animal is the Fishosaur, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is a major religion.

Random One is ranked 168,057th in the world and 12th in Gatesville Inc for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring -24.08 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
