The Community of American Free Territory is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, absence of drug laws, and devotion to social welfare. The democratic population of 216 million American Free Territoryians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
The large, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 48.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but stagnant American Free Territoryian economy, worth 3.76 trillion Commune Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Furniture Restoration, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 17,406 Commune Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. American Free Territory's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
