The Colony of Tribes Republic is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Jack McCarthy with an even hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, anti-smoking policies, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 12.196 billion Tribesmen have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lonoc. The average income tax rate is 95.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Tribesmen economy, worth a remarkable 1,422 trillion Kýms a year, is highly specialized and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 116,620 Kýms, with the richest citizens earning 5.3 times as much as the poorest.

Pharmaceutical companies emphatically promise that "your pills are in the mail" rather than admit any supply shortfall, life-saving resuscitation is denied based on decades-old teenage diaries that declare "I want to die before I get old", homeowners on prime real estate have been seen dodging giant bulldozers with cartoon characters painted on them, and political speeches always take place at sunset to a background of patriotic power ballads. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tribes Republic's national animal is the Horse, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Aadrani.

Tribes Republic is ranked 126,836th in the world and 9th in Union of Republics for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -2.5 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
