The United Republic of 24221 Paradigm is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by The Principex with a fair hand, and remarkable for its national health service, unlimited-speed roads, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The compassionate, democratic population of 3.057 billion 24221 Paradigmians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Apotheosis. The average income tax rate is 95.7%.

The frighteningly efficient 24221 Paradigmian economy, worth 480 trillion Dollars a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 157,060 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

School kids who pretend to drive imaginary cars get a social worker and a police observer assigned to them, a primitive society is being eroded as its youth flock to the modern world, UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, and the road to capitalism has proved an epic drama of adventure and exploration. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 24221 Paradigm's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Agnoticism.

24221 Paradigm is ranked 1,529th in the world and 2nd in Evergreen Conifer for Least Corrupt Governments, with 96.63 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
