The Colony of 103SQN is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, public floggings, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 2.724 billion 103SQNians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Administration, and Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 60.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped 103SQNian economy, worth 114 trillion rubles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Pizza Delivery, Uranium Mining, and Book Publishing. Average income is 42,039 rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Moonshine has made a resurgence, nations that kill a 103SQNian can expect a strongly worded letter, a petition to make petitions important again has been deemed unimportant, and a five-year-old and a convicted terrorist can sit alongside one another in jury service. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 103SQN's national animal is the Swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

103SQN is ranked 26,939th in the world and 1,170th in Balder for Most Authoritarian, with 1,834.84 milliStalins.
