The People's Republic of 13B-PO1 is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its infamous sell-swords, state-planned economy, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic population of 971 million 13B-PO1ians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Skye Lark City. The average income tax rate is 63.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant 13B-PO1ian economy, worth 10.5 trillion pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Trout Farming, Uranium Mining, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 10,859 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Supreme Court vehemently protects civil rights and the right to privacy, critical thinking is grounds for expulsion from university, sullen teenagers in bright orange 'community payback' onesies can be seen picking litter at the roadside, and popular websites like NationStates are blocked for "national security". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 13B-PO1's national animal is the capybara, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

13B-PO1 is ranked 160,296th in the world and 6,308th in Balder for Most Average, scoring 27.95 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
