The Amazing Flying Boulders of D055 is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Jack Ruby with an iron fist, and renowned for its avant-garde cinema, rampant corporate plagiarism, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.387 billion Conspirators 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hidden Agenda. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 56.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Conspiring economy, worth 302 trillion Banks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 126,799 Banks, with the richest citizens earning 6.6 times as much as the poorest.

Small children pause apologies for their misdeeds to ask what fiscal insolvency actually is, small children are learning a lot of new words from a teacher with Tourette Syndrome, the thin blue line is composed of picketing police officers demanding better pensions, and citizen radio operators agree that the certification test can open up a world of hertz. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. D055's national animal is the Cheetah, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Freemasonry.

D055 is ranked 33,015th in the world and 57th in Windows for Most Influential, scoring 712 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
