The Cyber Technocracy of 101110101000 is a gargantuan, orderly nation, ruled by The Grand Poobah with an iron fist, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, parental licensing program, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 22.604 billion binarians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The tiny, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Education, with Defense, Environment, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Binary City. The average income tax rate is 1.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient 101110101000ian economy, worth a remarkable 5,963 trillion gold cubes a year, is fairly diversified and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. Average income is an amazing 263,807 gold cubes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of 101110101000's radio stations, Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity, nuclear physics is the most popular course at university, and belligerent citizens shoot at passing clouds for 'violating their airspace'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. 101110101000's national animal is the llama, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

101110101000 is ranked 15,363rd in the world and 438th in The East Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 85.86 on the Human Development Index.
