The Galactic Anarchy of The Disorder is a huge, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Great Destroyer with an iron fist, and renowned for its unlimited-speed roads, ubiquitous missile silos, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 973 million Disorder Agents are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Industry, Administration, and Education also on the agenda, while Welfare and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Installation One. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 12.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Disorderian economy, worth 145 trillion Fuel-Gigajoules a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 149,169 Fuel-Gigajoules, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,141,808 per year while the poor average 5,293, a ratio of 215 to 1.

The local custom of Biking With The Cars sends tourists home bemused or in body-bags, discarded pennies litter the streets, citizens complain about a burning sensation after bathing, and if foreigners can hit a spittoon from five paces they get a free holiday to The Disorder. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. The Disorder's national animal is the Asura, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

The Disorder is ranked 1,114th in the world and 1st in St Abbaddon for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 215.68 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
