The Armed Republic of Placeholder name is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by The Corporate Big Wig with a fair hand, and renowned for its compulsory military service, pith helmet sales, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.458 billion Placeholder nameans are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, with Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of This City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 3.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Placeholder namean economy, worth 345 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, Soda Sales, and Gambling. Average income is an impressive 140,563 Coins, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 822,001 per year while the poor average 11,282, a ratio of 72.9 to 1.

The leading national news source is 'my cousin Billy-Bob on MyFace', all judiciary cases are decided in the court of public opinion, pet rocks are sold by the pound, and factory workers offered 20-hour shifts are expected to thank their bosses for the wonderful opportunity. 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, and its national religion is Capitalist Exploitation.

Placeholder name is ranked 207,026th in the world and 8,386th in the South Pacific for Lowest Crime Rates, with 11.83 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
