The United Socialist Republic of Ovisterra is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Sheepman with an even hand, and notable for its hatred of cheese. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 8.155 billion enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of the Environment, Social Equality, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Baa. The average income tax rate is 67%, 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.
The fire protection service is wholly government-funded, the government has cut taxes in the face of widespread tax evasion, schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students, and gambling is outlawed. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is crippling. Ovisterra's national animal is the sheep, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is idk man, and its currency is the viaticus.
