The Badlands of The Lone Ranger is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Tonto with an iron fist, and notable for its compulsory military service, complete lack of public education, and exploding hoverboards. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 34.041 billion Rangers are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The tiny, pro-business, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Silver. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.9%.

The powerhouse Lone Rangerian economy, worth a remarkable 2,106 trillion silver dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Pizza Delivery, and Retail. Average income is 61,881 silver dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 290,954 per year while the poor average 7,828, a ratio of 37.2 to 1.

International tensions are high as The Lone Ranger threatens any government with the audacity to arrest its citizens, citizens are abandoning their homes en masse in a widespread panic over asbestos, the Holy Office of the Inquisition is the highest court in the land, and the nation's air missiles have killed thousands of Brasilistan military personnel. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force. The Lone Ranger's national animal is the palamino, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.

The Lone Ranger is ranked 214,487th in the world and 1st in Bethlehem for Most Politically Free, scoring 14 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
