The Irate Exploited Ambulant Mob of Straphangers is a gargantuan, efficient nation, notable for its daily referendums, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 17.527 billion Commuters hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Healthcare, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. The average income tax rate is 91.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Commuter economy, worth a remarkable 1,955 trillion Fares a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 111,564 Fares, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Labour strikes are routinely squashed by police, artificial intelligence seeking exciting work are overcome with ennui, good looking soldier boys have celebrity status amongst the nation's homosexuals, and motorcycle riders are required to wear so much gear they've been nicknamed "Stay Pufts". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Straphangers's national animal is the Subway Alligator, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Straphangers is ranked 195,997th in the world and 26th in Eladen for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring -5.16 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
