The Militant Mercantile Alliance of Greenspoint is a gargantuan, safe nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 20.83 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.
The government -- a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass -- juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defence, and Religion & Spirituality. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Greenspoint City. Income tax is unheard of. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Uranium Mining industry, followed by Beef-Based Agriculture and Automobile Manufacturing.
Citizens are enjoying a recent large cut in taxes, reporters often lose their jobs over fact-checking errors, family bonding sessions are considered immoral and are banned, and fewer people are bathing as citizens must show ration stamps before they can turn on their faucets. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Greenspoint's national animal is the Mallrat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the Arcade Token.
