The Cyberpunk Chaos of Headingtonia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, flagrant waste-dumping, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 24.103 billion Alexandrians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The minute, corrupt, pro-business, well-organized government, or what there is of one, is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with Law & Order and Industry also on the agenda, while Environment and Welfare receive no funds. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Headingtonian economy, worth a remarkable 9,328 trillion Golden CatŪs 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 Information Technology, Soda Sales, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 387,033 Golden CatŪs, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 2,942,334 per year while the poor average 14,120, a ratio of 208 to 1.

Agricultural employees work for peanuts, opening a bad email attachment can be a major felony, Scout campfire sing-a-longs tend to focus on the evils of antitrust legislation, and Headingtonian police have to pay out of their own pockets for bulletproof vests. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Headingtonia's national animal is the Zombie Original Cat, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is the Cult of Loh.

Headingtonia is ranked 1,027th in the world and 38th in The North Pacific for Most Armed, with 20.87 Weapons Per Person.
