The Federation of The police state is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Commander Jones with an iron fist, and notable for its aversion to nipples, parental licensing program, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 26.288 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 14,151 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 538,341 Law Dollars, with the richest citizens earning 9.8 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's soldiers often believe they're in the Air Force, court cases mostly involve lawyers shouting questions at witnesses giving silent shrugs, you can bet your bottom dollar that gambling will cost you an arm and a leg, and the men in trenchcoats hanging around playgrounds are actually police officers. 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 4,632nd in the world and 194th in Lazarus for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 18,110.12 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
