The Watchfires of CDI-1 is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its public floggings, restrictive gun laws, and suspicion of poets. The devout population of 12.637 billion CDI-1ians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 38.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong CDI-1ian economy, worth 610 trillion $$s a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Arms Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 48,324 $$s, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

School teachers check the staff room for hidden webcams before complaining about rebellious students, a PhD just ain't what it used to be, access to the woods is only granted to those who bring a small shrubbery, and law schools are hurrying to teach the "prank defense" to their students. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. CDI-1's national animal is the Death's-head Hawkmoth, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

CDI-1 is ranked 244,893rd in the world and 1st in Cleveland for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -9.44 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
