The Enslaved workforce of The Busy Beaver is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Dammicus with an iron fist, and notable for its infamous sell-swords, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 4.239 billion Slaves are ruled with an iron fist by the corrupt, dictatorship government, which oppresses anyone who isn't on the board of a Fortune 500 company. Large corporations tend to be above the law, and use their financial clout to gain ever-increasing government benefits at the expense of the poor and unemployed.

The tiny, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Dam. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.4%.

The powerhouse Beaver economy, worth 376 trillion Woodchips a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Uranium Mining, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 88,831 Woodchips, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 358,542 per year while the poor average 14,694, a ratio of 24.4 to 1.

Street crime is on the rise as police officers spend most of their time in prisons, customer satisfaction with online delivery services is at an all time high, the internet has been placed under government control, and claiming to have performed the Heimlich Maneuver is a popular defense for assault charges. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force. The Busy Beaver's national animal is the Beaver, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is Damndamism.

The Busy Beaver is ranked 146,624th in the world and 1,200th in Chicken overlords for Largest Governments, scoring 9.8 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
