The Most Serene Republic of Third in the Arms Race is a gargantuan, safe nation, renowned for its avowedly heterosexual populace, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 17.518 billion Third in the Arms Raceans are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Welfare, although Education, Defense, and Healthcare are also considered important. The average income tax rate is 69.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Third in the Arms Racean economy, worth 467 trillion Warheads a year, is highly specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 26,662 Warheads, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Some say Leader has gone MAD after authorizing the development of apocalyptic biological weapons, the Third in the Arms Race Automotive Racing Series draws millions of spectators annually while those near the tracks complain about the noise, an aboriginal talking stick is used for leaders' debates at election time, and every day's an auto-de-fé day. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Third in the Arms Race's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Third in the Arms Race is ranked 72,741st in the world and 1st in Grand Coast for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 2,234.82 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
