The Republic of Fat retired people is a gargantuan, orderly nation, notable for its state-planned economy, compulsory military service, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 30.01 billion Fat retired peopleans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 87.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Fat retired peoplean economy, worth 799 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, extremely specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 26,637 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Elections have been outlawed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fat retired people's national animal is the lobster, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Fat retired people is ranked 64,296th in the world and 14th in Florida for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 2,433.11 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
