The Republic of Static Charge 1 is a massive, cultured nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, avant-garde cinema, and smutty television. The hard-nosed population of 1.741 billion Static Charge 1ians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 23.0%.

The very strong Static Charge 1ian economy, worth 112 trillion pesos a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 64,673 pesos, with the richest citizens earning 6.2 times as much as the poorest.

The state is footing the bill for billionaires' lawyers, earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss, recognizing the Static Charge 1ian flag qualifies you for citizenship, and hostage-takers offer loyalty scheme points for prompt payment. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Static Charge 1's national animal is the squirrel, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Static Charge 1 is ranked 123,427th in the world and 203rd in Zazumo for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring 704.53 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
