The Magnificent Eternal Empire of The Class Council is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by the glorious Supreme Council with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, smutty television, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 2.492 billion servile students are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The medium-sized, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Classroom. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 35.9%.

The frighteningly efficient servile economy, worth 280 trillion Monetes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 112,550 Monetes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 376,479 per year while the poor average 25,011, a ratio of 15.1 to 1.

Artificial intelligences seeking exciting work are overcome with ennui, the government's new priority is citizens' access to cat videos, the moon's craters are more numerous every day, and people seem disproportionately distraught when told a museum has a phones-off policy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Class Council's national animal is the octopus, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is Schneiderism.

The Class Council is ranked 34,516th in the world and 12th in South Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 15.05 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
