The Federal Republic of I Always Choose The Last Option is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Leader with an iron fist, and renowned for its lack of airports, aversion to nipples, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 9.103 billion I Always Choose The Last Optionians 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 enormous, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Administration, although Industry, Healthcare, and Environment are also considered important, while Welfare and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital City. The average income tax rate is 99.4%.

The frighteningly efficient I Always Choose The Last Optionian economy, worth a remarkable 2,862 trillion Currencies a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Retail, Furniture Restoration, Uranium Mining, and Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 314,489 Currencies, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 887,737 per year while the poor average 89,183, a ratio of 10.0 to 1.

The nation's infamous rickshaw ambulances often double as hearses, religious epiphanies are often cited as a reason for high school drop-outs, the line of people waiting for a visa interview in front of foreign embassies is typically a mile long, and thieves find battery shops juicier targets than banks. Crime is so common that it is unusual to encounter someone following the law, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. I Always Choose The Last Option's national animal is the National Animal, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

I Always Choose The Last Option is ranked 260,531st in the world and 7th in TERRY for Healthiest Citizens, with 0.26 bananas ingested per day.
