The Colony of Psychorea is a colossal, orderly nation, renowned for its closed borders, state-planned economy, and fear of technology. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 7.725 billion Psychoreans 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 is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Administration also on the agenda, while Welfare and Social Policy receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 95.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Psychorean economy, worth a remarkable 3,850 trillion Skulls 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, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. 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 498,389 Skulls, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

The government's religious works are headed by a New Age guru, immigrant herding has become a national pastime, it is written that heretics die and Leader laughs, and prevalence rates of genitourinary infectious disease are inexplicably on the rise. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Psychorea's national animal is the Man, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Psychorea is ranked 159,667th in the world and 7,090th in the South Pacific for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 698.77 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
