The Stratocratic Republic of Honourbound is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Grand General Maximillian Rodgers with a fair hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, strictly enforced bedtime, and irreverence towards religion. The democratic, humorless population of 1.394 billion Honourbound are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government prioritizes Defense, although Administration, Education, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ausdaeur. The average income tax rate is 79.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Honourbound economy, worth 193 trillion Venaris a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 138,641 Venaris, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Tea and biscuits have replaced waterboarding and sleep deprivation as the primary tools of interrogation, the military sees national borders more as guidelines than absolutes, for 25 Venaris tourists can gawk at the site of national tragedy, and throwing garbage out of your house's front window makes it legally someone else's problem. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Honourbound's national animal is the Thunderbird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Honourbound is ranked 9,558th in the world and 269th in the Pacific for Most Inclusive, scoring 188.44 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
