The Mothers of Invention is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, intelligent population of 4.645 billion Inventionians 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 is mainly concerned with 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 soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its currency is the maw.

Invention is ranked 4th in Rock and Roll and 24,133rd in the world for Least Corrupt Governments, scoring -6 on the Inverse Mugabe Relativity Rating.
