The Free Realms of Pure Thought is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its happy-go-lucky citizens. The compassionate, intelligent population of 24.529 billion Pure Thinkers are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
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, Education, and Social Welfare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Athenai. The average income tax rate is 100%. 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.
A large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, space research funding has hit a recent high while several military bases are being closed down, the military frequently holds bake sales to raise funds, and tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pure Thought's national animal is the Oscillating Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its currency is the platinum-clott.
Pure Thought is ranked 29th in California and 110,536th in the world for Lowest Unemployment Rates, scoring -160 on the Workforce Participation Versus Theoretical Maximum Metric.
