The Rogue Nation of Sector Manufacturing is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, flagrant waste-dumping, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.929 billion Cogs In The Machine 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 tiny, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Overworked economy, worth 280 trillion labours a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Automobile Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 145,473 labours, with the richest citizens earning 9.7 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens' lost socks are government property, fake beard sales are on the rise amongst female commuters, the police use sound cannons and mortars to deal with loud parties, and hit TV show 'The eXecution Factor' is a critical success. Crime is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Sector Manufacturing's national animal is the eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Sector Manufacturing is ranked 213,840th in the world and 24th in Stats for Highest Drug Use, scoring 28.4 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
