The Colony of SS-AAA is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its smutty television, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical, devout population of 313 million Zitravgradians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of HQ Building. The average income tax rate is 69.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Zitravgradian economy, worth 7.28 trillion Zitravian hrynias a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming and Uranium Mining. Average income is 23,249 Zitravian hrynias, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Red Cross demand for body bags is rising while sutures go unused, political satirists and late night comedians weep as the government begins cleaning up its act, SS-AAA has designated HQ Building as its capital city, and banning party poppers has been a real party pooper. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. SS-AAA's national animal is the nightingale, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

SS-AAA is ranked 193,714th in the world and 6,565th in Balder for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -17.31 on the Hayek Index.
