The Republic of Nation1812 is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its avant-garde cinema, anti-smoking policies, and flagrant waste-dumping. The cynical population of 594 million Nation1812ians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 74.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Nation1812ian economy, worth 43.8 trillion ZEKS a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Furniture Restoration, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 73,749 ZEKS, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Kids these days know how to throw a proper punch, children who write letters to Santa Claus end up in straitjackets, 10-year-olds who struggle with integrating by parts are considered slow learners, and rebuilding efforts for a recently destroyed cathedral aren't expected to be completed for another century. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nation1812's national animal is the Vulture, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Nation1812 is ranked 32,246th in the world and 1,404th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 4,043.12 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
