The Military government of Plazland is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by ᴠᴇʀᴋʜᴏᴠɴʏʏ ɢᴇɴᴇʀᴀʟ ᴋᴏʀɴᴇʏ with an iron fist, and remarkable for its soft-spoken computers, strictly enforced bedtime, and vat-grown people. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 8.021 billion Plazans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Janus. The average income tax rate is 98.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Plazanic economy, worth a remarkable 1,987 trillion Plazanic digital Rubles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 247,741 Plazanic digital Rubles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Pallbearers at military funerals dive for cover when they hear the three-volley salute, EULAs remind customers that "Private Mode" is a browser setting rather than a promise, the Plazanic football team for the Maxxmas ceasefire consists only of Intelligence Corps personnel, and the government's giant servers are often used as a tourist trap. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Plazland's national animal is the Oriental black eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Atheism.

Plazland is ranked 1,869th in the world and 48th in The East Pacific for Most Armed, with 15.59 Weapons Per Person.
