The Dictatorship of Controlandia is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its frequent executions, lack of airports, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 229 million Controlandians 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, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 29.1%.

The sizeable but inefficient Controlandian economy, worth 11.0 trillion Souls a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Furniture Restoration, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 48,127 Souls, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

The practice of capital punishment proves divisive, grandparents tell young ones tales of the good old days when people had cake on their birthday, students who do not recite the national anthem each morning have to drop and give their teacher 50, and graffiti artists spend lengthy periods of time in jail. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force. Controlandia's national animal is the Dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Controlandia is ranked 102,061st in the world and 3rd in Hyperico for Largest Black Market, with 461 billion Standard Monetary Units.
