The Republic of Nation1812 is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its national health service, pith helmet sales, and anti-smoking policies. The cynical population of 460 million Nation1812ians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 71.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Nation1812ian economy, worth 26.9 trillion ZEKS a year, is led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration, Tourism, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 58,555 ZEKS, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The slowest students feel vaguely targeted by their Mendelian Inheritance coursework, primetime re-runs of The Black and White Minstrel Show are a critical hit, sports fans complain that cricket tests now last an unbearable ten days, and politicians "baring all" for the camera isn't always a figure of speech. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nation1812's national animal is the Vulture, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Nation1812 is ranked 173,220th in the world and 4,150th in The North Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 26.9 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
