The Republic of Thebest51 is a massive, cultured nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, vat-grown people, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.224 billion Thebest51ians 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 large, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Law & Order, although Defense, Education, and Healthcare are also considered important. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 46.6%.

The Thebest51ian economy, worth 43.1 trillion marks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Gambling, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 35,178 marks, with the richest citizens earning 6.6 times as much as the poorest.

Families consisting of more than three people are forced to split up, wearing a daisy chain is a fast-track ticket to unemployment, agricultural employees work for peanuts, and pet owners must make a payment if their charges leave a deposit. Crime is almost non-existent, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Thebest51's national animal is the penguin.

Thebest51 is ranked 220,512th in the world and 160th in A Card Farm for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 128.57 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
