The Colony of 172sqn is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its fear of technology, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The devout population of 1.471 billion 172sqnians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 53.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient 172sqnian economy, worth 73.0 trillion francs 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 Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Automobile Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is 49,652 francs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Invasive drug testing is now performed at elementary school sports days, immigrant herding has become a national pastime, young and brooding teens are welcomed with open arms to the Dogwarts School of Strangeness and Sorcery, and children are brainwashed at a young age to accept "love and peace!" as a way of life. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 172sqn's national animal is the Gannet, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

172sqn is ranked 103,134th in the world and 3,600th in Lazarus for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 728.13 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
