The Republic of Substantial is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its daily referendums, infamous sell-swords, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 4.356 billion Substantialians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Administration. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Substantialian economy, worth 597 trillion secrets a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Soda Sales, and Gambling. Average income is an impressive 137,181 secrets, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 735,370 per year while the poor average 13,376, a ratio of 55.0 to 1.

Citizens hear a diversity of opinions from a range of billionaire-owned corporations, farmers' market days almost always end in a shooting, frequent broken zippers have resulted in safety pins making a fashion comeback, and Substantial City has become the number one destination for urban exploration in Osiris. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Substantial's national animal is the aardvark, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Substantial is ranked 230,268th in the world and 10,785th in Osiris for Most Conservative, scoring 13.38 on the Bush-Santorum Dawning Terror Index.
