OverviewPeopleGovernmentEconomyTrendAnalysis

The Mothers of Invention is a massive, genial nation, remarkable for its complete lack of prisons. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 4.086 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 large government concentrates mainly on Education, although Social Welfare and Social Equality are secondary priorities. The average income tax rate is 27%, but much higher for the wealthy. 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 government seizes the property of the recently deceased, factories are regularly demolished to make way for low-cost housing areas, citizens are allowed to rise or fall based on their own merits, and students cut up leftover maws during Arts and Crafts. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is moderate, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. Invention's national animal is the macaw, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the maw.

Invention is ranked 7th in Rock and Roll and 105,122nd in the world for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -3 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
