The Holy Empire of Dystopian Run is a massive, safe nation, ruled by KAF with an iron fist, and renowned for its public floggings, digital currency, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 1.599 billion Dystopians 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 prioritizes Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Industry are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dystopian Isle. The average income tax rate is 81.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Dystopian Runian economy, worth 187 trillion Ales a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 117,519 Ales, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Advertisements read like science journal articles complete with extensive references, light entertainment isn't dead, KAF's office has a newly installed Max-Man arcade game programmed by a 5th-grader, and giggling teens are asked to put their mouths on rubber dolls. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dystopian Run's national animal is the Raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Dystopian Run is ranked 61,321st in the world and 1,030th in Balder for Most Stationary, with 134.12257388372 Days.
