The Esoteric Suburbanism of Unprintable Initiator is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by El Jefe with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, national health service, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, devout population of 2.474 billion Ealdormen have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government is primarily concerned with Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Industry are also considered important, while Social Policy and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Agartha. The average income tax rate is 67.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Unprintable economy, worth 152 trillion dobbins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 61,539 dobbins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, the clergy of Peaceful Self Improvement remains a single-sex institution, the nation's favourite colour is orange (Unprintable Initiator has found 1 easter egg), and weird kids who eat bugs are breaking the law. Crime is totally unknown. Unprintable Initiator's national animal is the stuffed animal, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Peaceful Self Improvement.

Unprintable Initiator is ranked 139,575th in the world and 332nd in The Glorious Nations of Iwaku for Most Pro-Market, scoring 33.33 on the Rand Index.
