The Colony of 201sqn is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, democratic, devout population of 380 million 201sqnians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Spirituality, and Education. The average income tax rate is 53.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish 201sqnian economy, worth 12.2 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Information Technology, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 32,164 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Dog owners proudly declare that their pups can predict when the mailman will arrive, behind every great person are three dozen other people passing great memos, most ambassadors from 201sqn retire only a few years after being appointed, and cricket farmers use magnifying glasses to fit every member of their herd with tiny tracking tags. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 201sqn's national animal is the Seagull, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

201sqn is ranked 49,304th in the world and 1,773rd in the South Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 580.64 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
