The Gravitational Shifts of Psi-2000 is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Joe Tormolen with an even hand, and remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, fear of technology, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 2.426 billion Science Team Members have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Control Room. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 20.8%.

The powerhouse Psi-2000 economy, worth 159 trillion Federation Credits a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 65,648 Federation Credits, with the richest citizens earning 9.4 times as much as the poorest.

The government only announces the deaths of its members when it's convenient, an exhibition on Polywater memes is currently starring at the National Art Gallery, excessive gerrymandering has earned Psi-2000 the nickname 'The Democratic Dictatorship', and leading ethologists are being investigated for illegal electoral interference. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Psi-2000's national animal is the Polywater, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Psi-2000 is ranked 67,825th in the world and 31st in United Earth Space Probe Agency for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 86.35 on the Hayek Index.
