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 punitive income tax rates, parental licensing program, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 22.922 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 84.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The large but stagnant 1 Infinite Loopian economy, worth 234 trillion Metric Pounds a year, is highly specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 10,230 Metric Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
All citizens are solely referenced by their allocated identity number, the government has declared its commitment to multilateralism, new safety regulations require all cars manufactured in 1 Infinite Loop to be bombproof, and teams of painters are converting road signs from horse lengths to kilometers. 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.
