The Roaming Bands of The Unknown Army is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Cynder with an even hand, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 17.597 billion mercenaries have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government prioritizes Defense, with Industry, Education, and Welfare also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hoofington. The average income tax rate is 77.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient a mercenary economy, worth a remarkable 2,120 trillion bottle caps a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 120,477 bottle caps, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens wouldn't recognise Cynder if they passed one another on the street, political satirists and late night comedians weep as the government begins cleaning up its act, local councils have to call in dump trucks to clear parks of dinosaur droppings, and the manticore has a hungry look. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Unknown Army's national animal is the manticore, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

The Unknown Army is ranked 143,722nd in the world and 3rd in The Empire of Friendship for Least Corrupt Governments, with 92.98 percentage of bribes refused.
