The Armed Republic of Small Calibre Automatics is a massive, orderly nation, notable for its compulsory military service, ubiquitous missile silos, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.488 billion Small Calibre Automaticsians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fortress City Zero. The average income tax rate is 70.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Small Calibre Automaticsian economy, worth 108 trillion Spent Casings a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 73,178 Spent Casings, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Mathematicians are gathering an infinite number of Weaponized Ferrets and typewriters to see if they can recreate the works of Max Barry, the police think a properly conducted criminal investigation is a real pain, a primitive society is being eroded as its youth flock to the modern world, and shopkeepers use microscopes to verify the authenticity of banknotes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Small Calibre Automatics's national animal is the Weaponized Ferret, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Small Calibre Automatics is ranked 133,231st in the world and 12th in Free Thought for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 92,067 Standard Monetary Units.
