The Colony of 101SQN is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, compulsory military service, and enforced nudity. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 2.467 billion 101SQNians 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 medium-sized, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Welfare, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 35.1%.

The very strong 101SQNian economy, worth 193 trillion guilders a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Retail, Trout Farming, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 78,517 guilders, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 243,607 per year while the poor average 19,482, a ratio of 12.5 to 1.

Cigarettes are dead-cheap, Leader has no checks and balances after the upper house was abolished, death row inmates cower in fear at the phrase "one-year anniversary", and inheritance tax has recently been abolished. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 101SQN's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

101SQN is ranked 59,252nd in the world and 2,600th in Balder for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 50.99 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
