The Really BONKERS elite forces of Usual People In Life is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by The Sox Handler with a fair hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, intelligent population of 11.405 billion Usual Peoples In Lifean 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, corrupt government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Defence, Law & Order, and Education. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mega Sox. The average income tax rate is 100%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Tourism industry, followed by Book Publishing and Automobile Manufacturing.
Graffiti artists spend lengthy periods of time in jail, public loudspeakers constantly tell citizens they are "happy people", cheating spouses are required to undergo job training, and students cut up leftover Credits during Arts and Crafts. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Usual People In Life's national animal is the Sox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is Reality of Sox, and its currency is the Credit.
