The Backspace of 0x08 is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, daily referendums, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate, hard-working, devout population of 705 million 0x08ians 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 medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Stack. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 48.0%.

The all-consuming 0x08ian economy, worth 69.0 trillion bytes a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 97,939 bytes, with the richest citizens earning 7.5 times as much as the poorest.

Books are considered luxuries only available to the incredibly wealthy, billions are being spent on a new island airport, there's a lot of babies crying for milk in the middle of the day, and a spate of enforced closures has left 'Government FM' as the nation's only radio station. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 0x08's national animal is the RAM, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

0x08 is ranked 105,871st in the world and 88th in Bytes for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 660.22 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
