The Field of Chicago 9 is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its devotion to social welfare. Its hard-nosed, intelligent population of 4.628 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 concentrates mainly on Social Welfare, although Religion & Spirituality and Education are on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 41%, but much higher for the wealthy. Private enterprise is illegal, but for those in the know there is a slick and highly efficient black market in Automobile Manufacturing.
Immigrant Maxtopians are routinely sold on popular internet auction sites, tombstones are ten feet high to accommodate the names of inhabitants, a government program is underway to revitalize Chicago 9's beaches, and the commercialisation of highly deadly weapons has instilled Chicago 9 with a very polite populace. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown. Chicago 9's national animal is the billy goat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is sports, and its currency is the plate.
