The Colony of -12 is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-working, cynical population of 347 million -12s are proud of their wide-ranging civil freedoms, and those who aren't tend to be dragged off the streets by men in dark suits and hustled into cars with tinted windows.

The relatively small, liberal, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 16.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong -12 economy, worth 20.8 trillion credits a year, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 60,079 credits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Moonshine has made a resurgence, museums have more touchscreens on display than artifacts, preschools put children down for naps with milk, cookies, and a gruesome story of vengeance, and fitness to teach sport is proven by urinating the furthest up a wall. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. -12's national animal is the Bog Monster, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

-12 is ranked 127,368th in the world and 10th in Dauiland for Largest Governments, scoring 10.86 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
