The Confederacy of Socialist test 181 is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, pith helmet sales, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 557 million Socialist test 181ians 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Law & Order, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 52.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Socialist test 181ian economy, worth 25.0 trillion Credits 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 large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Furniture Restoration, Tourism, Arms Manufacturing, and Uranium Mining. 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 44,917 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The volume of paperwork used to complete a single environmental assessment defeats the purpose, the "boy who cried wolf" policy makes sick people reluctant to call an ambulance, boys are forced to pair off for the school disco slow dance as the girls are all staying at home, and serial killers who are released early distribute death but not their seed. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Socialist test 181's national animal is the Cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Socialist test 181 is ranked 96,628th in the world and 3,671st in The East Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 965.68 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
