The Free Society of Kokkinostan is a colossal, genial nation, remarkable for its lack of airports, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.767 billion Kokkinostanians 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.
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Policy, and Environment. The income tax rate is 100%.
The frighteningly efficient Kokkinos economy, worth a remarkable 1,473 trillion Standards a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. Average income is an impressive 168,072 Standards, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Public footpaths are being slowly eroded by the burgeoning number of ramblers, elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume, Kokkinostan City spends billions upgrading public transport, and anti-government web sites are springing up. Crime is totally unknown. Kokkinostan's national animal is the Goat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
