The People's Republic of 0001b is a huge, genial nation, notable for its complete lack of prisons, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 592 million 0001Bians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Administration, and Education. The average income tax rate is 67.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but sluggish 0001bian economy, worth 13.3 trillion WHES a year, is quite specialized and led by the Cheese Exports industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 22,417 WHES, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Large sections of 0001b have been named national reserves to protect the native tribes living there, graverobbers claim they're acting within the interest of 'scientific preservation', the national guard is mobilized whenever a mother gets separated from her child at the mall, and holiday light displays just aren't the same without seizure-inducing strobe effects. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 0001b's national animal is the Swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
