The Holy Empire of Earth and Freedom is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Chief Officer Nathan with an even hand, and renowned for its frequent executions, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed population of 9.971 billion Earth and Freedomians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.
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 Environment, Welfare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Freedomnapolis. The average income tax rate is 85.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The Earth and Freedomian economy, worth 448 trillion Free dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Gambling industry. Average income is 45,012 Free dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Citizens are regularly found digging for treasure in their gardens, museums stand half-empty as all foreign exhibits are returned to their countries of origin, referenda can be called for any law at the request of at least one third of the voting population, and the government blames all suspicious phenomena on flying saucers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Earth and Freedom's national animal is the Blue Jay, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
