The Armed Republic of Musketoon is a huge, safe nation, notable for its public floggings, parental licensing program, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 411 million Musketeers are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, moralistic government prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order, Administration, and Industry are also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Powderkeg. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 24.7%.

The all-consuming Musketeer economy, worth 41.9 trillion Stocks a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 101,980 Stocks, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 619,099 per year while the poor average 7,475, a ratio of 82.8 to 1.

There is a disproportionate number of poor people in prison, the masses are surrendering their civil liberties without complaint for the sake of shopping convenience, phone taps are frequently carried out by the police, and diplomats shake hands with their right and hide a poison dagger in their left. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force. Musketoon's national animal is the AR-15, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Musketoon is ranked 33,895th in the world and 490th in 10000 Islands for Most Developed, scoring 71.56 on the Human Development Index.
