The Allied States of Kreative Disturbance is a colossal, efficient nation, renowned for its ritual sacrifices, daily referendums, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless, devout population of 8.25 billion Kreative Disturbanceans 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 medium-sized, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Social Policy, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kreative Disturbance City. The average income tax rate is 12.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Kreative Disturbancean economy, worth 824 trillion Imaginary Mice a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Book Publishing, Uranium Mining, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 99,890 Imaginary Mice, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Teachers are routinely tested to keep their jobs, brazen mayors claim official expenses to pay for their drug habits, 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Kreative Disturbance's radio stations, and laws are littered with references to cheese. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Kreative Disturbance's national animal is the Donkey, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is a major religion.
