The Server-Fighting Sysadmin of The Glorious Hypetrain is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Kade Weston Vasentius with a fair hand, and renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 10.476 billion Glorious Station Attendants are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Glorious Station. The average income tax rate is 80.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Glorious Station Attendant economy, worth a remarkable 1,495 trillion Dollarydoos a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 142,721 Dollarydoos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Customer satisfaction with online delivery services is at an all time high, the true length of the coastline of The Glorious Hypetrain may never be measured, dog owners proudly declare that their pups can predict when the mailman will arrive, and the optimally efficient parking strategy for business commuters is referred to as the "traveling salesman problem". Crime is totally unknown. The Glorious Hypetrain's national animal is the Swimming MLG Noscoper, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The Glorious Hypetrain is ranked 11,882nd in the world and 28th in The Union of Democratic States for Smartest Citizens, with 84.76 quips per hour.
