The Holy French Hippopotamus of 1 Infinite Loop is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Horhay Mendolenzavasquesma with an even hand, and renowned for its national health service, parental licensing program, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 23.285 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 84.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The large but stagnant 1 Infinite Loopian economy, worth 469 trillion Metric Pounds a year, is highly specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 20,161 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.
