The Blue Island of Cnidaria is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and notable for its devotion to social welfare. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 3.276 billion 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 juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Social Equality. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cnidaria City. The average income tax rate is 99%. 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.
The nation has an international reputation for compassion, children are raised bilingual from an early age, parents live in fear of governmental 'child protection' squads, and roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cnidaria's national animal is the Jellyfish, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Fig.
