The Republic of BigRed118 is a massive, orderly nation, notable for its rum-swilling pirates, complete lack of prisons, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 1.236 billion BigRed118ians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Healthcare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 41.5%.

The strong BigRed118ian economy, worth 60.7 trillion guilders a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Arms Manufacturing, and Pizza Delivery. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 49,124 guilders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.3 times as much as the poorest.

Rap artists are regularly arrested for promoting extremist groups, the new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction, wrongful arrests abound as 'criminals' blame the guy next to them, and a major religion has been named as BigRed118's national religion. Crime is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. BigRed118's national animal is the wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

BigRed118 is ranked 207,274th in the world and 105th in Tir Na Nog for Most Secular, with 13.28 Atheism Rate.
