The Republic of Collective Pact is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 665 million Collective Pactians 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Law & Order, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 69.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Collective Pactian economy, worth 4.42 trillion dollars 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 mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Tourism, and Information Technology. Average income is 6,646 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens recently voted in favour of declaring bubblewrap an 'abomination of nature', mandatory neutering has made purebred dogs a thing of the past, the nation's once beautiful countryside has turned brown as farmers spray potent pesticides, and truncheon-mounted cameras record the beating of criminals in dynamic HD detail. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Collective Pact's national animal is the region, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Collective Pact is ranked 205,075th in the world and 3,759th in Lazarus for Fattest Citizens, with 9.34 Obesity Rate.
