The Commonwealth of Indulgence and Ecstasy is a massive, socially progressive nation, renowned for its unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, intelligent population of 4.423 billion Indulgence and Ecstasyians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 73%, and even higher for the wealthy. A substantial private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.
Suit-clad businessmen have been taking advantage of the relaxed welfare qualifications by shopping with food stamps, all recreational drugs are legal, 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Indulgence and Ecstasy's radio stations, and radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion. Crime is relatively low. Indulgence and Ecstasy's national animal is the Penguin, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Euro.
