The Calculation of Sixteen Bits is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Doctor Tommy Flowers with an iron fist, and renowned for its state-planned economy, compulsory military service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 6.831 billion Sixteen Bitsians are ruled with an iron fist by the socialist government, which grants its people the freedom to do whatever they like so long as it doesn't involve getting richer than anybody else or challenging the government.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Welfare, with Education, Healthcare, and Defense also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Motherboard. The average income tax rate is 74.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Sixteen Bitsian economy, worth 109 trillion Bits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Furniture Restoration, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 16,094 Bits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sixteen Bits has designated The Motherboard as its capital city, Doctor Tommy Flowers has just been declared ruler of Sixteen Bits in an international press conference, and Digital Atheism has been named as Sixteen Bits's national religion. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sixteen Bits's national animal is the Integer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Digital Atheism.

Sixteen Bits is ranked 104,256th in the world and 6th in Supershilling for Highest Economic Output, with 109 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
