The Armed Republic of Substitute name is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 309 million Substitute nameans are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.
The tiny, pro-business, outspoken government prioritizes Defense, with Industry, Education, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Welfare receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.5%.
The powerhouse Substitute namean economy, worth 23.7 trillion coins a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 76,745 coins, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 339,734 per year while the poor average 10,834, a ratio of 31.4 to 1.
Dogman-branded weapons are all the rage in the militaristic comic-book community, the nation is famous for having one of the world's largest Taxidermied Bobcat hunting institutions, every political office comes fitted with a typewriter and an old filing cabinet, and a third of Substitute nameans are e-certified CEOs. Crime is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Substitute name's national animal is the Taxidermied Bobcat, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.
