The Golden Autumn of September is a colossal, efficient nation, remarkable for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 8.573 billion Septemberians enjoy great individual freedoms in everything except elections, which, where they exist at all, are populist shams for a dictatorship government that has no intention of ever giving up power.

The tiny, pro-business, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Spirituality, and Administration also on the agenda, while International Aid and Welfare aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.6%.

The thriving Septemberian economy, worth 546 trillion senses a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Gambling, and Information Technology. Average income is 63,787 senses, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 225,786 per year while the poor average 13,011, a ratio of 17.4 to 1.

Schools offer a range of lessons in subjects as diverse as The Economics of Bullying for Lunch Money and euthanasia is legal. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. September's national animal is the leopard, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

September is ranked 52,327th in the world and 1st in Augustin Alliance for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 3,679.57 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
