School Class Nation

The Republic of Socrateous is a colossal, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its hatred of cheese. The hard-working, intelligent population of 6.189 billion, 4.574 billion of whom are zombies, Socrateousians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government devotes most of its attentions to the Environment, with areas such as Social Equality and Healthcare receiving almost no funds by comparison. The average income tax rate is 22%. 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.

Schoolchildren have twice-weekly sex education classes, Members of Parliament operate under a PAYE scheme, a survey of the nation's rivers and children has shown that pesticide levels are at an all-time regional high, and commercial jingles have been ham-handedly forced into world renowned symphonies. Crime is a problem. Socrateous's national animal is the Elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the iPad.

Socrateous is ranked 1st in Amalgamated Passage of Pine and 107,117th in the world for Most Dedicated Public Healthcare, scoring -5 on the Theresa-Nightingale Rating.

Socrateous is currently considering its options.
