The Materialistic State of Sturcture is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Max Planck with an iron fist, and remarkable for its smutty television, unlimited-speed roads, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 8.401 billion Comrades 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 enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Entropy. The average income tax rate is 88.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sturcturean economy, worth a remarkable 1,067 trillion Photons a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Information Technology. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 127,067 Photons, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nationalised Arms Manufacturing Industry is not interested in making weapons, people's charity begins and ends at home, selfie stick use is a required Scout badge, and it is illegal to distribute Girl Guide Cookies without an advanced food hygiene diploma. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sturcture's national animal is the Two-Headed Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Entropy.

Sturcture is ranked 40,889th in the world and 1,645th in the Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 23.84 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
