The Rogue Nation of Platform 1 is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its complete lack of public education, absence of drug laws, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 364 million Platform 1ians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Defense. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.1%.

The strong Platform 1ian economy, worth 22.3 trillion Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Pizza Delivery, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 61,302 Dollars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 376,447 per year while the poor average 4,365, a ratio of 86.2 to 1.

The nation's biggest export is stupidity, sushi just hasn't been the same since salmon went extinct overnight, former customs officers are adjusting to their new lives as market stall traders, and it can be a real jungle in a modern courtroom. Crime is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Platform 1's national animal is the the wild Afghani, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Platform 1 is ranked 236,865th in the world and 449th in The Free Nations Region for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring -10.49 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
