The United Kingdom of ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE 09 is a small, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its state-planned economy, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 23 million ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE 09ians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Defense, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 66.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The weak ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE 09ian economy, worth 689 billion rubles 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 Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Pizza Delivery, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 29,961 rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, gambling is outlawed, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, and organ donation is compulsory. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE 09's national animal is the black mumba, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
