The Republic of Static Charge 38 is a massive, safe nation, notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, compulsory military service, and zero percent divorce rate. The compassionate, devout population of 1.733 billion Static Charge 38ians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 46.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Static Charge 38ian economy, worth 78.6 trillion kronor a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Automobile Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 45,355 kronor, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Elementary school students are required to master Bach's Chaconne in D before graduation, couples kissing on the street are detained for 'unlawful exchange of genetic material', prisons are filled with the cackles and sobs of a deranged inmate population, and balaclava manufacturers are held criminally culpable for bank heists. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Static Charge 38's national animal is the swan, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Static Charge 38 is ranked 76,943rd in the world and 188th in Zazumo for Largest Governments, scoring 14.9 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
