The Free Land of Croissants is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, punitive income tax rates, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 687 million Croissant Peoples 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 enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 75.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but sluggish Croissantsian economy, worth 17.7 trillion Butters a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration and Uranium Mining. Average income is 25,829 Butters, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
In life full of care there is no time to stop and stare, there have been reports of people marrying housepets, the government recently donated a surfboard to an impoverished family in a landlocked region, and all government facilities are built in the subterranean citadel of Croissants City. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Croissants's national animal is the Toddler, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
