The Dwarven Fortress of Constructbegin is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Urist McLeader with an iron fist, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, museums and concert halls, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 2.275 billion Constructbeginians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Donlodir. The average income tax rate is 70.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Constructbeginian economy, worth 243 trillion Ales a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 106,870 Ales, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The dessert 'Death by Chocolate' isn't the most lethal dish on the menu, it turns out that you actually can put a price on intangible cultural heritage, arriving late for dinner is considered the height of selfishness, and politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Constructbegin's national animal is the Fluffy Wambler, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is The Church of Armok.

Constructbegin is ranked 118,604th in the world and 5,179th in The East Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 42.05 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
