The SWAT Team busting in of Sierra Minor is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by SWAT Team with an iron fist, and remarkable for its public floggings, pith helmet sales, and irreverence towards religion. The cynical population of 1.599 billion Sierra Minorians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Port Athena. The average income tax rate is 79.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Sierra Minorian economy, worth 61.7 trillion Ammos a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Arms Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 38,584 Ammos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed, power stations shutting down at night has made bedtime reading tricky, unpopular cops are fired at a moment's notice by the citizens they police, and smoking is banned in public areas. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sierra Minor's national animal is the Aerial Combat Drone, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Sierra Minor is ranked 137,537th in the world and 3,984th in the Rejected Realms for Highest Economic Output, with 61.7 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
