The Overly Humble Outcropping of Biblical Importance is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Outlaw Josey Wales with an even hand, and remarkable for its compulsory military service. The hard-nosed population of 11.577 billion Biblical Importanceans 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, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on the Environment, although Law & Order and Education are secondary priorities. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of 4th Floor South. The average income tax rate is 43%, but much 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.
Surrealist houses shaped like mushrooms and volcanoes dominate the wealthiest neighborhoods, immigrant herding has become a national pastime, soldiers are equipped with multi-million Half-Measure battlesuits, and senior citizens can usually be found doing heavy manual labour. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Biblical Importance's national animal is the Lady Bug, which is also the nation's favorite main course, its national religion is Fortunecookieism, and its currency is the Half-Measure.
