The French Hippopotamus of 1 Infinite Loop is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Horhay Mendolenzavasquesma with an iron fist, and remarkable for its unlimited-speed roads. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 19.922 billion 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.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 84%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.
The government enforces a policy of 'from each according to their ability, to each according to the available budget', politicians are to be found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, immigrant herding has become a national pastime, and conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 1 Infinite Loop's national animal is the Hippopotamus, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Metric Pound.
