The State on a Path to Peace of A Pacifist is a gargantuan, safe nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls. Its compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 13.3 billion enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Social Welfare, Education, and the Environment. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bertrand Russellpolis. The average income tax rate is 95%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Gambling industry.
Citizens wishing to leave the country must surrender half their wealth to the government, the "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Bertrand Russellpolis Times is sold out, prospective parents are cheering on the streets as they no longer need a license to have children, and young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables. Crime is totally unknown. A Pacifist's national animal is the rabbit, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the ecolog.
