The Republic of Remnants is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its pith helmet sales, compulsory military service, and digital currency. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 533 million Remnantsians are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The relatively small, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of System REDACTED. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 19.7%.

The powerhouse Remnantsian economy, worth 49.7 trillion Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Basket Weaving, and Retail. Average income is 93,338 Credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 268,767 per year while the poor average 25,746, a ratio of 10.4 to 1.

People of faith are sent to twelve-step programs for 'The Cure', the education system has gotten a recent boost in spending, a plague of zealots has been unleashed on the streets of System REDACTED, and Eau de Trashcan has become a wildly popular perfume. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Remnants's national animal is the Omega, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Remnants is ranked 211,327th in the world and 27th in The Outer Rim for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 49.5 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
