The Republic of BigRed14 is a massive, orderly nation, notable for its rum-swilling pirates, barren, inhospitable landscape, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 1.853 billion BigRed14ians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, moralistic, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Law & Order, Administration, and Public Transport also on the agenda, while Education isn't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 30.7%.

The BigRed14ian economy, worth 95.0 trillion rupees a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Gambling. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 51,249 rupees, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.1 times as much as the poorest.

Bureaucrats close new businesses for not complying with the Penguin Packaging Index, programmers often reinvent the wheel, student athletes gaze forlornly at abandoned lionball fields, and citizens are forced to donate blood once every three months. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low, thanks to a well-funded police force. BigRed14's national animal is the lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

BigRed14 is ranked 66,492nd in the world and 147th in Crystal Falls for Most Primitive, scoring 31.37 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
