The Democratic Republic of Sybaritic Socialists is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by All Smuggest with a fair hand, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 19.299 billion Sybaritic Socialistsians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
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 Defence receiving almost no funds by comparison. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kippenheim. The average income tax rate is 51%, and even higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is dominated by the Book Publishing industry.
Traffic jams are a common sight due to construction work from a massive overhaul of the nation's freeways, cheese has become the new icon of political dissent, children are sent to either religious or secular schools, and the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sybaritic Socialists's national animal is the lurcher, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the mebbe.
