The Federal Republic of Business Subsidization is a colossal, efficient nation, renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, state-planned economy, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.285 billion Subsidizes are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government is effectively ruled by the Department of Industry, with Administration and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Education and Welfare are ignored. The average income tax rate is 56.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Subsidized economy, worth 471 trillion currencies a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Gambling. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 89,157 currencies, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Homeowners on prime real estate have been seen dodging giant bulldozers with cartoon characters painted on them, the "feminist protest" defence is increasingly common for cases of armed robbery, the nation's government buildings are remarkable for being ugly concrete boxes, and citizens can freely debate whether Leader is a great leader or the greatest leader. Crime is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Business Subsidization's national animal is the turtle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Business Subsidization is ranked 291,989th in the world and 16th in Stats for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -9.49 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
