The Premium Deli Cuts of The Front Range is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Joseph Robinette Joestar Jr with an iron fist, and renowned for its ritual sacrifices, digital currency, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.808 billion Front Rangers 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 tiny, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Camp 1. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Front Ranger economy, worth 858 trillion metal scraps a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Gambling. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 225,398 metal scraps, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,593,991 per year while the poor average 10,690, a ratio of 149 to 1.

The tools of the trade for landmine clearance appear to be copious amounts of gasoline and a box of matches, visiting dignitaries often end up cuddling in the hot tub with Joseph Robinette Joestar Jr, artists are renowned for their ability to make art pieces out of thin air, and school lockers are filled with fancy underwear. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. The Front Range's national animal is the giant tick, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Ancient Sumerian Pantheon.

The Front Range is ranked 1,117th in the world and 17th in the South Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 1.59 million Standard Monetary Units.
