The Holy French Hippopotamus of 1 Infinite Loop is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Horhay Mendolenzavasquesma with an even hand, and notable for its public floggings, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 24.426 billion 1 Infinite Loopians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cupertino. The average income tax rate is 83.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant 1 Infinite Loopian economy, worth 470 trillion Metric Pounds a year, is highly specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 19,260 Metric Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's official head of religious affairs is an atheist, fancy dress parties are raided by military police for new recruits, tax evaders are regularly visited by agents of the 1 Infinite Loop Blood Tithe, and underground copulation clubs have sprung up in major cities. Crime 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.

1 Infinite Loop is ranked 185th in The East Pacific and 10,543rd in the world for Highest Police Ratios, scoring 125 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
