The Sultanate of 0x0C is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, zero percent divorce rate, and public floggings. The hard-working, devout population of 276 million 0x0Cians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Stack. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 34.7%.

The strong 0x0Cian economy, worth 20.0 trillion bytes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 72,558 bytes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 216,061 per year while the poor average 19,092, a ratio of 11.3 to 1.

Liberals and conservatives try to disqualify each other's candidates on the grounds that "their ideas would never work in the real world", a rolling news ticker tape of disclaimers runs across the bottom of the screen on all TV shows, pop sensation "Jack and the Holograms" is storming the charts, and members of the government all have oddly similar anecdotes about their childhoods. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 0x0C's national animal is the RAM, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

0x0C is ranked 194,213th in the world and 51st in Bytes for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -10.82 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
