The Amazing Flying Boulders of D055 is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Jack Ruby with an iron fist, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, enslaved workforce, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 3.745 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, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hidden Agenda. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 56.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Conspiring economy, worth 484 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 Beef-Based Agriculture. 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 129,311 Banks, with the richest citizens earning 6.1 times as much as the poorest.

Political activists are routinely executed, government spending has hit an all-time low, psychological disorders are a taboo subject, and the Counter-Terrorism Unit has been nicknamed "Big Bad Wolf" for its tendency towards urban demolition. 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 182,398th in the world and 85th in Windows for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -4.73 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
