The Kingdom of Agent Bond is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by 007 with an iron fist, and remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, ubiquitous missile silos, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 3.56 billion Agent Bondians 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 relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of London. The average income tax rate is 18.1%.

The all-consuming Agent Bondian economy, worth 332 trillion Spy Watcheses a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 93,527 Spy Watcheses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.8 times as much as the poorest.

Graffiti graces every city's streets, students are wary of colorfully decorated new teachers with names like Professor Pipsqueak, literature classes frequently go on field trips to rock concerts, and the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Agent Bond's national animal is the Invisible Cars, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Covert Spying.

Agent Bond is ranked 40,693rd in the world and 2nd in The Pacifican Banhammer for Most Developed, scoring 67.72 on the Human Development Index.
