The Armed Republic of 69th Tank Division is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its feral children, absence of drug laws, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 2.537 billion 69th Tank Divisionians 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 15.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The 69th Tank Divisionian economy, worth 101 trillion HESHES a year, is quite specialized and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Information Technology, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 39,944 HESHES, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.
Brown Sugar 101 is a popular course at community colleges, the consent form for routine blood pressure measurement has been nominated for the 'Novel Of The Year' award, even religious militants can be swayed by the power of #love, and country folk are sent to obligatory boarding schools to learn how to be civilized. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. 69th Tank Division's national animal is the Tanks, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
