The Holy French Hippopotamus of 1 Infinite Loop is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Horhay Mendolenzavasquesma with an even hand, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed population of 22.131 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.
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. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cupertino. The average income tax rate is 87%, 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.
Immigrants are required to salute the flag five times a day, all citizens are solely referenced by their allocated identity number, the government has declared its commitment to multilateralism, and new safety regulations require all cars manufactured in 1 Infinite Loop to be bombproof. 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, and its currency is the Metric Pound.
