The Kingdom of Innovative is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its triple-decker prams, enslaved workforce, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 231 million Innovativeans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 29.5%.

The Innovativean economy, worth 12.9 trillion dollars 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, fairly diversified black market in Basket Weaving, Trout Farming, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Furniture Restoration. 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 55,651 dollars, with the richest citizens earning 7.9 times as much as the poorest.

Both vegetables and viruses are often smuggled across the border, trying to toast marshmallows in an electric fireplace just isn't the same, airplane passenger seat sizes and ticket prices are both first-class, and modern readers say a story is worthless without hyperlinked footnotes and editable wiki format. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent. Innovative's national animal is the Fire salamander.

Innovative is ranked 152,648th in the world and 275th in The Black Hawks for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 1,073.33 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
