The Colony of Ush Aike is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its closed borders, ubiquitous missile silos, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 399 million Ush Aikeans 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 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 Aiken 46. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 26.4%.

The all-consuming Ush Aikean economy, worth 40.5 trillion Teshken Credits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 101,517 Teshken Credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 292,737 per year while the poor average 27,946, a ratio of 10.5 to 1.

The military invades any neighboring nation with the gall to criticize its policies, children have taken to using semaphore in light of the recent mobile phone ban, you can bet your bottom dollar that gambling will cost you an arm and a leg, and there is no such thing as an innocent fling in the Ush Aikean military. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ush Aike's national animal is the Epolenk Goln, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Ush Aike is ranked 20,452nd in the world and 47th in Guer Aike Territories for Most Authoritarian, with 2,762.78 milliStalins.
