The Republic of Extrememeasures is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Jeremy Extreme with an even hand, and notable for its closed borders, daily referendums, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 5.929 billion Extrememeasuresians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The large, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Extremetopia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 62.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Extrememeasuresian economy, worth 511 trillion barges a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Soda Sales, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 86,204 barges, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 248,939 per year while the poor average 23,683, a ratio of 10.5 to 1.

Grinning punters say that casino roulette is the greatest high that life has to offer, peace talks occasionally rack up a higher body count than the wars they seek to stop, bitter pastors forced to officiate gay marriage 'accidentally' pronounce couples "husband and abomination", and scientists earn more grant money for reproducing old experiments than trying anything new. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Extrememeasures's national animal is the bobcat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is xtremism.

Extrememeasures is ranked 20,528th in the world and 1,094th in Lazarus for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 3,265.27 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
