The United Socialist States of Paradise of Socialism is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its irreverence towards religion, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 285 million Paradise of Socialismians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.
The enormous, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 72.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but stagnant Paradise of Socialismian economy, worth 1.84 trillion Sticks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 6,473 Sticks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
It is illegal to make racist remarks in public. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Paradise of Socialism's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
