The Non Localized Communism of Animism is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, compulsory vegetarianism, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 11.408 billion Animismians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Welfare, with Education, Spirituality, and Healthcare also on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 74.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Animismian economy, worth 148 trillion Filthy Lucres a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Cheese Exports industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 12,974 Filthy Lucres, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Surveillance cameras are banned, voting is voluntary, vegetarianism is compulsory, and military funding has been stripped back. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Animism's national animal is the Moocher, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Animism is ranked 128,511th in the world and 3rd in The Zoo for Healthiest Citizens, with 0.8 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
