The Incorporated States of Working forever is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Master with an iron fist, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, pith helmet sales, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.671 billion Working foreverians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Slave city. The average income tax rate is 71.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Working foreverian economy, worth 213 trillion GPS a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 127,578 GPS, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Randomly bombing neighboring countries has become the new national sport, it is illegal to have the wrong clock time showing on your microwave oven, the military refers to helpless combatants offering surrender as "sitting ducks", and Big Brother is still watching even when your big brother is dead. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Working forever's national animal is the Slave, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is Our lord master.

Working forever is ranked 17,972nd in the world and 883rd in Balder for Highest Poor Incomes, with 77,788.04 Standard Monetary Units.
