The Holy French Hippopotamus of 1 Infinite Loop is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Horhay Mendolenzavasquesma with an even hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, compulsory military service, and parental licensing program. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 28.527 billion 1 Infinite Loopians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cupertino. The average income tax rate is 87.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The enormous but underdeveloped 1 Infinite Loopian economy, worth a remarkable 1,115 trillion Metric Pounds a year, is highly specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. Average income is 39,113 Metric Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Tax evaders are regularly visited by agents of the 1 Infinite Loop Blood Tithe, underground copulation clubs have sprung up in major cities, violent criminals are doomed to be hunted by a psychotic billionaire, and the nation leads The East Pacific in per capita stalking. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 1 Infinite Loop's national animal is the Hippopotamus, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

1 Infinite Loop is ranked 83,279th in the world and 2,977th in The East Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 1,692.45 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
