The Sultanate of Agent07 is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 660 million Agent07ians 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 large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 63.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Agent07ian economy, worth 54.3 trillion guilders a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 82,213 guilders, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 260,257 per year while the poor average 19,814, a ratio of 13.1 to 1.

The ban on cars has been repealed, referenda are banned by law and the Parliament has absolute control of the legislative process, the tomato-covered corpses that decorate the nation's cities are a favourite amongst morbid tourists, and mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest-growing field. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent. Agent07's national animal is the giraffe, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Agent07 is ranked 166,192nd in the world and 6,167th in the South Pacific for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -4.74 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
