“Over 100,000,000,000 fools pitied”

The Beat of Groovistan is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Mr T with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, intelligent population of 23.54 billion Groovistanians 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 Education, although Healthcare and Public Transport are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Funkytown. The average income tax rate is 96%. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.
The government has adopted a "Lightning Never Strikes Twice" approach to dealing with natural disasters, heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste, inter-species marriages are ignored by the government, and public nudity is compulsory. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Groovistan's national animal is the Cadbury Bunny, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the High Five.
