The High Fedelety Commune of A Classless Society is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by pap with an even hand, and renowned for its avant-garde cinema, sprawling nuclear power plants, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 23.435 billion people are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, 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 94.7%.

The frighteningly efficient human economy, worth a remarkable 3,215 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 137,196 labor tickets, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Workers of "fairweather faith" claim six months of paid leave for holy days per year, acupuncture is routinely prescribed for intravenous drug addicts, school lunches are made with hypo-allergenic wood pulp, and military chiefs are predicting extra funding in this year's budget. 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 167,949th in the world and 2nd in Sinope for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 20.53 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
