The Armed Republic of Nelsonian Deffense Branch is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its anti-smoking policies, keen interest in outer space, and enforced nudity. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 220 million Soldiers are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 37.8%.

The very strong Nelsonian Deffense Branchian economy, worth 13.8 trillion Firearms a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Information Technology, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Retail, and Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 62,797 Firearms, with the richest citizens earning 8.0 times as much as the poorest.

Producers insist that movie stars wear crash helmets in every scene, requests to "pass the salt" are supported by tank divisions, a Christmas Tourist Association survey has rated Nelsonian Deffense Branch #1 for number twos, and the people are famous throughout the region for their perfect yellow teeth. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force. Nelsonian Deffense Branch's national animal is the Bull Shark, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Nelsonian Deffense Branch is ranked 240,135th in the world and 126th in Christmas for Highest Drug Use, scoring 1.4 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
