The Oppressed Peoples of Statecontrol is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its frequent executions, compulsory vegetarianism, and hatred of cheese. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 1.397 billion Statecontrolians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Great Leader City. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 60.0%.

The very strong Statecontrolian economy, worth 150 trillion deniers a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Furniture Restoration, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an impressive 107,683 deniers, with the richest citizens earning 5.5 times as much as the poorest.

Diabetics find the contents of their medications hard to stomach, kids are exceptionally good at digging holes, the little guy plays a big role in Statecontrolian politics, and arthritic surgeons with tremulous fingers reassure patients that they are in safe hands. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Statecontrol's national animal is the panther, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Statecontrol is ranked 232,350th in the world and 10,393rd in the Rejected Realms for Smartest Citizens, with 15.67 quips per hour.
