The Militaristic of Old red is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Red thunder with an iron fist, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, compulsory military service, and enslaved workforce. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 2.718 billion Thunderheads are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Burgan. The average income tax rate is 54.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Old redian economy, worth 278 trillion Coins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Furniture Restoration, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an impressive 102,371 Coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Scenic beaches are now protected by massive concrete walls, signs of extraterrestrial life are just foreign astronauts evading Old redian justice, government popup ads are springing up like weeds, and Red thunder claims tax rises are the result of 'curses'. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Old red's national animal is the White wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Thunderris.

Old red is ranked 238,259th in the world and 37th in Grand Peppian Commonwealth for Most Secular, with 5.56 Atheism Rate.
