The United Federation of Plisskenstan is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Andrew Jackson with a fair hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 13.313 billion enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it devotes most of its attentions to Education, with areas such as Religion & Spirituality and Social Welfare receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Thingamageek. The average income tax rate is 7%, but much higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Book Publishing industry, followed by Tourism and Retail.
Voting is voluntary, Saturday morning cartoons feature full frontal nudity, Plisskenstan's children are widely acknowledged as the most foul-mouthed in the region, and new safety regulations require all cars manufactured in Plisskenstan to be bombproof. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Plisskenstan's national animal is the Chupacabra, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the Sponk.
