The Colony of 199sqn is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, devout population of 467 million 199sqnians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Healthcare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 46.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient 199sqnian economy, worth 23.7 trillion guilders a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Cheese Exports, and Book Publishing. Average income is 50,787 guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Ice-filled coffins are ominously positioned in the corner of every hospital ward, it's considered a civil right to be allowed to neglect and mistreat your own children, 199sqn recently decided against having a capital city, and human pie shops continue to receive shipments of meat from Spleeny Rodd's. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 199sqn's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

199sqn is ranked 35,174th in the world and 1,127th in The East Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 803.81 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
