The Theocratic Stratocracy of Sub Sector Protractis is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Lord Regent Jarris Maddox with an iron fist, and remarkable for its strictly enforced bedtime, smutty television, and fear of technology. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 16.757 billion Sub Sector Protractisians 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 juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Bastion. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 73.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Sub Sector Protractisian economy, worth a remarkable 4,197 trillion Throne Gelts a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 250,482 Throne Gelts, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,439,630 per year while the poor average 20,935, a ratio of 68.8 to 1.

Aeroplane cockpits no longer have altimeters or airspeed indicators, military doctrine says not to open fire until you see the "beady little eyes" of Johnny Foreigner, theories abound over why conspiracy theorists are being arrested, and Lord Regent Jarris Maddox shot first. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Sub Sector Protractis's national animal is the Aquila, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Imperial Cult.

Sub Sector Protractis is ranked 223,073rd in the world and 26th in The Milky Way Galaxy for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 43.61 Workforce Participation Rate.
