The Blue Scout of Red Spy In The Base is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Red Spy with an iron fist, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, complete lack of prisons, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.998 billion Red Spies are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Industry also on the agenda, while Social Policy and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of 2Fort. The average income tax rate is 62.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Red Spy economy, worth 277 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 138,928 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Seven-year-olds debate for weeks on the merits of the Oxford comma, the right school tie opens more doors than the right qualification, news editors who eschew the state-approved superlatives for describing Red Spy tend to disappear, and nobody thinks that the Godfather was bettered by Part 2. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Red Spy In The Base's national animal is the Scout, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Red Spy In The Base is ranked 17,717th in the world and 148th in Europeia for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 99.11 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
