The Server-Fighting Sysadmin of The Glorious Hypetrain is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by Kade Weston Vasentius with an even hand, and renowned for its smutty television, ubiquitous missile silos, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, democratic population of 14.423 billion Glorious Station Attendants enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, 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 85.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Glorious Station Attendant economy, worth a remarkable 2,015 trillion Dollarydoos a year, is quite specialized 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 139,753 Dollarydoos, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no 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 276,774th in the world and 229th in The Union of Democratic States for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 18.44 Whatever.
