The Theocracy of Industia is a very large, orderly nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and enforced nudity. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 129 million Industians 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 enormous, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Spirituality, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 68.8%.

The Industian economy, worth 6.96 trillion Thrones a year, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 53,962 Thrones, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

Money that should have gone to charities is instead spent on monitoring them, people are often woken up by rubbish music, footballers are doing aerobics in the sauna to build their hot weather endurance, and citizens who don't recite the Pledge of Industia at least three times a day are placed on a terrorist watch-list. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Industia's national animal is the Landraider, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Industia is ranked 114,658th in the world and 3,859th in The East Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 55.45 on the Human Development Index.
