The Borderlands of Field Mint is a very large, orderly nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 119 million Field Mintians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 15.9%.

The Field Mintian economy, worth 6.05 trillion Golds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 50,845 Golds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Toddler groups have taken over local libraries, there are traffic jams at sea as diligent customs officers check every part of every ship, Field Mint's soft-touch approach to diplomacy has made it known as the 'push-over' of the region, and getting a haircut is a punishable offence. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Field Mint's national animal is the Akita, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Field Mint is ranked 102,527th in the world and 22nd in Region de France for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 1,651.23 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
