The Armed Republic of Placeholder name is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, frequent executions, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 342 million Placeholder nameans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Public Transport. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of This City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Placeholder namean economy, worth 39.9 trillion Coins a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Gambling. Average income is an impressive 116,528 Coins, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 653,273 per year while the poor average 10,306, a ratio of 63.4 to 1.

Traumatized ex-ambassadors seek treatment for their "desk dissociation", school teachers check the staff room for hidden webcams before complaining about rebellious students, the government terminates employment with extreme prejudice, and an alabaster statue of an ancient cat-deity takes pride of place in the centre of This City. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Placeholder name's national animal is the taxidermied wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Placeholder name is ranked 15,287th in the world and 555th in the South Pacific for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 76.91 Workforce Participation Rate.
