The Shazbotdom Colony of Alraibris is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-working, democratic population of 20.364 billion Alraibrisians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 83.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The thriving Alraibrisian economy, worth a remarkable 1,143 trillion Black Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Information Technology industry. Average income is 56,154 Black Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.
Libraries are bulldozed to make way for internet cafés, all-natural foods are becoming a major fad, the government is making attempts at curtailing the flood of spam emails with little progress, and it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Alraibris's national animal is the Havoc, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
