The Third Reformed States of The Founding Citadel is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its flagrant waste-dumping, zero percent divorce rate, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 678 million Founded Citadelians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, corrupt, pro-business government is primarily concerned with Industry, with Education, Healthcare, and Defense also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Katesia. The average income tax rate is 5.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Founding Citadelian economy, worth 79.5 trillion Rubes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is an impressive 117,236 Rubes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

Sales of pregnancy testing kits are booming, the military has forsaken terrestrial warfare, the nation is committed to nuclear rearmament, and behind every local dictator is a Founding Citadelian advisor whispering in their ear. Crime is a serious problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. The Founding Citadel's national animal is the Raven, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

The Founding Citadel is ranked 238,134th in the world and 8,232nd in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring -7.75 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
