CP-1

The Republic of CP-1 is a colossal, genial nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 8.14 billion CP-1ians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The large government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Industry are also considered important, while International Aid isn't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 43.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The CP-1ian economy, worth 403 trillion $$s a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 49,603 $$s, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Minor parties are virtually absent in Parliament, the 'sing-a-long with Leader' album is a popular souvenir, the nation refuses to provide international aid, and foreign leaders' Twitcher accounts are monitored for potential threats to national security. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. CP-1's national animal is the laughing swordfish, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

CP-1 is ranked 130,863rd in the world and 1st in Corporatist Paradise for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -3.54 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
