The Livin' La Vida Retired of Punk Reloaded is a colossal, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 9.315 billion Punk Reloadedians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.
It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of the Environment, Social Welfare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 47%. 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.
Citizens rise at daybreak every day for mandatory exercise, dog breeding has been banned in accordance with recent animal experimentation laws, droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, and the country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry. Crime is relatively low, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Punk Reloaded's national animal is the dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Christianity, and its currency is the flax.
