The Dictatorship of Outsider Land is a gargantuan, efficient nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 11.88 billion Outsider Landians 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 Education, Industry, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 90.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Outsider Landian economy, worth a remarkable 2,922 trillion Bytes a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 246,035 Bytes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Murder rates are on the rise as the popularity of soylent products grows, politicians always seem to take two steps forward then three steps back, hiding wrinkles with make-up is illegal, and international trade can be a pain to deal with. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Outsider Land's national animal is the Mouse, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Outsider Land is ranked 229,717th in the world and 120th in Confederacy of Allied States for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -11.53 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
