The Empire of Glucose-6-phosphate is a massive, genial nation, renowned for its prohibition of alcohol, state-planned economy, and public floggings. The compassionate, devout population of 1.03 billion Glucose-6-phosphateans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 78.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Glucose-6-phosphatean economy, worth 137 trillion ATPS a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 133,194 ATPS, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Abortion is only legal in unusual circumstances, you need two tenors and a coloratura contralto to sing the national anthem properly, citizens are permitted to carry concealed handguns, and traffic cops spend most of their work-hours calculating citizens' monthly income. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Glucose-6-phosphate's national animal is the maung, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Glucose-6-phosphate is ranked 18,783rd in the world and 808th in The North Pacific for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 4,489.32 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
