The High Fidelity Commune of A Classless Society is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by pap with an even hand, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, enslaved workforce, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 25.83 billion people are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of High Fidelity Communal Music Centre. The average income tax rate is 94.5%.

The frighteningly efficient human economy, worth a remarkable 4,232 trillion labor tickets a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, highly specialized black market in Uranium Mining, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 163,871 labor tickets, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.4 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens know not to ask what their country can do for them but what they can do as chained slaves for their country, military doctrine says not to open fire until you see the "beady little eyes" of Johnny Foreigner, vital intelligence-gathering activities are put on hold as agents return home for seduction training and advanced poker instruction, and the nation's most popular sport is sabotaging foreigners' hopes and dreams. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. A Classless Society's national animal is the Spirited Crow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Finding Anarchist Bliss in 5 Easy Steps.

A Classless Society is ranked 202,882nd in the world and 1st in Sinope for Safest, scoring 6.61 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
