The Borderlands of Repressing fools is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by The Best Leader of the Best Country with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, vat-grown people, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 8.793 billion Repressed Fools 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is dominated by the Department of Defense, with Spirituality and Administration also on the agenda, while Welfare and Environment are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital City of Repressing. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 76.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Repressed Fool economy, worth a remarkable 3,743 trillion Round rocks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 425,735 Round rocks, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,357,756 per year while the poor average 38,690, a ratio of 60.9 to 1.

The Counter-Terrorism Unit has been nicknamed "Big Bad Wolf" for its tendency towards urban demolition, colonists who were promised new lands find only war-torn devastation, the police are tightening their grip on alcohol smugglers, and the navy is chrome-plating its battleships to prevent rust. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, despite the fact that it is difficult to make it through a day without breaking one of the country's many laws. Repressing fools's national animal is the Pig, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Glorious Leader is Eternal God.

Repressing fools is ranked 17,044th in the world and 486th in The East Pacific for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 76.8 Effective Tax Rate.
