The United Columnists of Page 53 is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Editor-in-chief Jane Doe with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, ubiquitous missile silos, and vat-grown people. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.163 billion Readers hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large government is primarily concerned with Education, although Environment, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Paragraph 2. The average income tax rate is 73.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Page 53ian economy, worth 90.9 trillion Units a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 78,119 Units, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The average commuter spends four hours a day driving to and from work, the Page 53 Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise, Editor-in-chief Jane Doe is considering changing the Page 53ian flag to one with more glitter, and the government is pouring billions into replacement brains. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Page 53's national animal is the Drone, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Page 53 is ranked 17,136th in the world and 568th in the South Pacific for Most Popular Tourist Destinations, with 1,440.68 Tourists Per Hour.
