The Rogue Nation of MSN 43 is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Highlander with an iron fist, and remarkable for its disturbing lack of elderly people, enslaved workforce, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless, devout population of 1.901 billion MSN 43ians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Andrews. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 38.4%.

The frighteningly efficient MSN 43ian economy, worth 237 trillion dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is extensive. Average income is an impressive 124,763 dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 386,420 per year while the poor average 31,035, a ratio of 12.5 to 1.

The nation operates a "finders-keepers" policy with other nations' citizens, sleeping on the job is recommended, religious households enthusiastically use whips in private, and weird kids who eat bugs are breaking the law. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. MSN 43's national animal is the kangaroo, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is Awakening.

MSN 43 is ranked 224,841st in the world and 316th in NationStates for Fattest Citizens, with 6.41 Obesity Rate.
