The Production Facilities of Industria is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Factory Manager with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, smutty television, and complete lack of public education. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 18.322 billion Industrians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fabric. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Industrian economy, worth a remarkable 4,819 trillion coins a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Gambling, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 263,047 coins, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,444,079 per year while the poor average 2,618, a ratio of 933 to 1.

Factory Manager's office has a newly installed Max-Man arcade game programmed by a 5th-grader, schoolyard sandboxes resemble ashtrays due to the large number of cigarette butts, mystics are claiming that a simultaneous rise in scepticism and education budgets is correlation rather than causation, and citizens are prohibited from raising their voice above thirty decibels in commercial districts. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Industria's national animal is the employee, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Production.

Industria is ranked 126,332nd in the world and 228th in Capitalist Paradise for Largest Governments, scoring 10.91 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
