The Dwarven Fortress of Constructbegin is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Urist McLeader with an iron fist, and renowned for its infamous sell-swords, complete lack of prisons, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 3.892 billion Constructbeginians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Donlodir. The average income tax rate is 76.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Constructbeginian economy, worth 408 trillion Ales a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Tourism, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 105,009 Ales, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Notable individuals are granted land and titles, it's always rabbit season, a degree in Urist McLeader Science with a Minor in Awesomeology starts many political careers, and tabloids coo over Urist McLeader's expected child. 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 24,187th in the world and 459th in The East Pacific for Most Stationary, with 659.51355707772 Days.
