The Republic of Standing On The Moon is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, ubiquitous missile silos, and ritual sacrifices. The quiet, industrious population of 525 million Standing On The Moonians 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 relatively small, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Administration. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 21.3%.

The powerhouse Standing On The Moonian economy, worth 36.2 trillion rainbows a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 68,872 rainbows, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 215,558 per year while the poor average 16,875, a ratio of 12.8 to 1.

Urban graffiti is hand-calligraphed in perfectly kerned elegant fonts, anti-vaxxers claim that injected children are prone to psychotic breaks when they see the 'Queen of Diamonds' playing card, the masses are surrendering their civil liberties without complaint for the sake of shopping convenience, and friendly fire incidents usually result in severe burns. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Standing On The Moon's national animal is the rainbow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Standing On The Moon is ranked 28,962nd in the world and 1st in Qwerty Qwem dot com for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 4,754.29 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
