The TBH Commander of Red Back is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Commander Red Back with an iron fist, and notable for its parental licensing program, ubiquitous missile silos, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 34.206 billion Redbackians 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 Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hawkbacawk. The average income tax rate is 91.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Red Backian economy, worth a remarkable 5,366 trillion nas a year, is highly specialized and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 156,890 nas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation takes the world's poor and tired and the huddled Masses yearning to breathe free, the thin blue line is composed of picketing police officers demanding better pensions, the blind lead the blind in social welfare, and prisoners due for execution often use their final statement to complain about soggy bread rolls. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Red Back's national animal is the red back, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Backawk.

Red Back is ranked 198,653rd in the world and 377th in The Black Hawks for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -9.17 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
