The Supreme Armed Republic of Securitatem Primum is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 1.974 billion Securitatem Primumians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Industry, and Education are also considered important, while Environment and Spirituality aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Great Fort. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 61.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Securitatem Primumian economy, worth 287 trillion plumbums a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 145,699 plumbums, with the richest citizens earning 6.2 times as much as the poorest.

Doctors prescribe medicines but they rarely dispense hope or compassion, ethnic minorities are often refused admission to some of the nation's best schools, rare art has become a significant factor in negotiating all foreign trade agreements, and games of cops and robbers typically end in at least one fatal shooting. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Securitatem Primum's national animal is the Northern Goshawk, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Securitatem Primum is ranked 14,569th in the world and 131st in Confederation of Corrupt Dictators for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 98.88 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
