The Unholy White Lined Fever of I 49 is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Eisenhower with an iron fist, and renowned for its teetotalling pirates, compulsory vegetarianism, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 7.643 billion Highwaymen 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 medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bentonville. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 41.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Roadworthy economy, worth 777 trillion tolls a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 101,742 tolls, with the richest citizens earning 5.7 times as much as the poorest.

The year's most anticipated show is "Great Deals on Delicious Meals", baby boys who pick up pink crayons are sent to a psychiatric ward, scientists recently cloned the long-extinct feather-bellied Thunderbird, and innocent defendants often plead guilty for fear of receiving a much harsher sentence before jury. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. I 49's national animal is the Thunderbird, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution, and its national religion is Constructionist.

I 49 is ranked 26,469th in the world and 2nd in Arkansas for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 4,874.7 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
