The Dictatorship of CiC Red Back is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Commander Red Back with an iron fist, and renowned for its compulsory military service, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 9.985 billion CiC Red Backians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Black Hawks. The average income tax rate is 69.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The CiC Red Backian economy, worth 401 trillion Nas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Uranium Mining, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 40,247 Nas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Fishermen take out second mortgages to afford the yearly fishing permit, people experiencing anaphylactic shock are told to buck their ideas up, interviewees for teaching jobs are waterboarded to "reveal undesirable histories", and CiC Red Backians believe a soft answer turneth away wrath but punitive punishment is much more fun. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. CiC Red Back's national animal is the The Black Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Black Hawk Cult.

CiC Red Back is ranked 190,123rd in the world and 449th in The Black Hawks for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -7.75 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
