The Synchronous Idle of 0x16 is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, restrictive gun laws, and suspicion of poets. The devout population of 716 million 0x16ians 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Stack. The average income tax rate is 56.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong 0x16ian economy, worth 26.8 trillion bytes a year, is highly specialized and led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 37,447 bytes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens try to ignore gruesome pictures of decaying teeth printed on their soda cans, government ministers sport new billboards that read 'Will Trade Votes for Private Members' Bill Support', even immigrants complain that immigrants keep taking their jobs, and one does not simply walk into the tundra. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 0x16's national animal is the RAM, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

0x16 is ranked 125,297th in the world and 110th in Bytes for Largest Governments, scoring 11 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
