The Federation of The police state is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Commander Jones with an iron fist, and renowned for its enslaved workforce, free-roaming dinosaurs, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 23.08 billion police stateans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The tiny, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Justice City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient police statean economy, worth an astonishing 12,347 trillion Law Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Retail, and Gambling. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is a breathtaking 534,999 Law Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,774,783 per year while the poor average 120,367, a ratio of 14.7 to 1.

Patriotic citizens chant "there's only one The police state" at foreigners, funeral directors are frequently looking at their watches during funerals, beating enemies to death with a baseball bat is legal if done within nine innings, and photos of picturesque coastal buildings are set against a backdrop of smokestacks and ship hulls. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. The police state's national animal is the Wedge Tail Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is The Church of the Commander.

The police state is ranked 58,808th in the world and 3,205th in Osiris for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 2,682.46 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
