The Animal Magnetism Engine of Stone Age Electricians is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its infamous sell-swords, compulsory military service, and public floggings. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 22.614 billion Stone Age Electriciansians 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Welfare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 83.4%.

The very strong Stone Age Electriciansian economy, worth a remarkable 1,221 trillion Wires a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, extremely specialized black market in Tourism. 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 54,018 Wires, with the richest citizens earning 8.1 times as much as the poorest.

Everyone suspects that everyone else is a terrorist, women across the country are tying the knot, songs in 4/4 time are simply too common for the musical cognoscenti, and the nation's diplomatic missives are now delivered via sniper rifle. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Stone Age Electricians's national animal is the Electrical Engineer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Tarot and Engineering.

Stone Age Electricians is ranked 144,270th in the world and 6,271st in The North Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 42.1 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
