The Dichromatic Mechanism of August is a colossal, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, smutty television, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 9.942 billion Augustins live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, corrupt, liberal, pro-business, outspoken individuals is effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, although Education and Public Transport are also considered important, while Law & Order and Environment aren't funded at all. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Augustin economy, worth a remarkable 2,302 trillion senses a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Information Technology, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 231,597 senses, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,607,247 per year while the poor average 11,675, a ratio of 137 to 1.

9 out of 10 consumers think that vitamins can cure cancer, open-casket funerals are avoided at all cost, citizens try to pass off bottlecaps they found in their backyards as historical artifacts, and Leader can often be found attempting to coax random citizens' cats down from trees. Crime, especially youth-related, is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. August's national animal is the leopard, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

August is ranked 167,210th in the world and 36th in Cape of Good Hope for Most Pacifist, with 3.05 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
