The Allied States of Mamihlapinatapai is a colossal, safe nation, notable for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.386 billion Mamihlapinatapaians 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 enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Haina. The average income tax rate is 90.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The large but stagnant Mamihlapinatapaian economy, worth 216 trillion tapis a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 25,864 tapis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Any citizen who cries is immediately assigned a psychiatrist, the government has adopted a "Lightning Never Strikes Twice" approach to dealing with natural disasters, political scientists despair as the national mascot election eclipses all others in voter enthusiasm, and tourists need only sign on the dotted line to become citizens. Crime is totally unknown. Mamihlapinatapai's national animal is the guanaco, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
