The Geniocracy of Invictus is a colossal, cultured nation, remarkable for its hatred of cheese. The compassionate, intelligent population of 6.532 billion Invictians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Social Welfare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Civitas. The average income tax rate is 66%, and even 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.
Voting is voluntary, women earn less than half the salary of men if they can even find a job, political parties are banned from advertising and receiving private donations, and citizens are expected to be proficient in at least five languages. Crime is totally unknown. Invictus's national animal is the liondog, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the equita.
