“Capitalism is Organized Crime”

The Communist Collective of Karl Marx is a massive, socially progressive nation, renowned for its compulsory vegetarianism. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 3.272 billion hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be 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 Equality. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Marxburg. The average income tax rate is 47%, 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 arms industry has been shut down in a surge of pacifism, people reciting Shakespeare have become a common sight, it is illegal for police officers to carry out searches due to strict privacy laws, and Lions have more rights than the average citizen. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. Karl Marx's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the Word.
