Hmm... they reproduce once, when they reach 17 (and obviously have more than one kid each) and then raise the kids.

That, or the State raises the kids while the newly-minted adults go off into the workforce. This would likely mean some of the adults would indeed be involved in the raising of the children, but if you have multiple broods you might opt to have caretakers always be from a different brood than the children. Or maybe they're largely raised by machines, like the first generation in Horizon: Zero Dawn (the Taarakans in Vandread are implied to be in a similar boat - at one point Hibiki tries to convince the robot guarding his cell to let him as "We were both made in the factory, right?"; humorously, Hibiki is one of the few Taarakans who wasn't made in a factory, he just doesn't know that).

Yes, this would probably be some sort of dystopian society. Expect a lot of the new adults to join the military to fight (and often die) in the endless war(s).
