The Free and Holy Republic of The Happy Civilians is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by the Brilliant Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, infamous sell-swords, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 20.065 billion Patriotic Citizens 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 minute, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order and Industry are also considered important, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Joyous City of Freedom. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Patriotic Citizen economy, worth a remarkable 9,558 trillion Almighty Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an amazing 476,391 Almighty Dollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,462,220 per year while the poor average 4,284, a ratio of 1,041 to 1.

The Brilliant Leader's new office has a propensity to catch on fire, thieves are flogged in public for their crimes, the media have begun calling the government treasury "the Brilliant Leader's stash", and many of the poor live from cradle to grave without ever seeing sunlight. Crime is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. The Happy Civilians's national animal is the Super Amazing Brave Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

The Happy Civilians is ranked 210,153rd in the world and 9,039th in The East Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 19.36 Years.
