The Free and Holy Republic of The Happy Civilians is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by the Brilliant Leader with an iron fist, and notable for its strictly enforced bedtime, flagrant waste-dumping, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 20.321 billion Patriotic Citizens are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The minute, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, although Law & Order is also considered important, while Environment and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Joyous City of Freedom. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Patriotic Citizen economy, worth a remarkable 9,701 trillion Almighty Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is an amazing 477,435 Almighty Dollars, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 4,472,006 per year while the poor average 4,293, a ratio of 1,041 to 1.

Commuters and their desktops both bemoan their hard drives, the national Police Academies have dedicated infant wings, school uniforms are compulsory, and politicians are often seen with soldiers pointing guns at their heads. Crime is pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. The Happy Civilians's national animal is the Super Amazing Brave Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

The Happy Civilians is ranked 3,410th in the world and 87th in The East Pacific for Highest Crime Rates, with 25.26 Crimes Per Hour.
