The Pegasus of Guard 16 is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its punitive income tax rates, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 16.042 billion Guard 16ians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Social Policy. The average income tax rate is 69.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Guard 16ian economy, worth 38.7 trillion Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Soda Sales industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 2,410 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Guard 16's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Guard 16 is ranked 167,159th in the world and 1st in League of Anarchic Societies for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring zero on the Hickory Productivity Index.
