The Authoritarian Dictatorship of Photoniar is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by General Skull with an iron fist, and remarkable for its frequent executions, anti-smoking policies, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.521 billion Photonista are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Administration, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while International Aid is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of General Skulland. The average income tax rate is 73.3%.

The very strong Photonist economy, worth 162 trillion Photonist state currencies a year, is mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 106,930 Photonist state currencies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Teenagers are making eye contact with each other for the first time in years, the nation's interest in space is at an all-time high while interest in saving the planet is at an all-time low, male friends are often accompanied by a female relative in order to prove their 'straightness', and the nation's new Mylab space station is notorious for being the loneliest place above the planet. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Photoniar's national animal is the skull, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Skullism.

Photoniar is ranked 3,274th in the world and 1st in Death Lords for Most Advanced Defense Forces, scoring 16,585.37 on the Total War Preparedness Rating.
