Dark Mistletoe

The Republic of Dark Mistletoe is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Viola with a fair hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 2.877 billion Dark Mistletoeans 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 large, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Spirituality, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Bianca. The average income tax rate is 42.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Dark Mistletoean economy, worth 22.8 trillion olive branches a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, highly specialized black market in Trout Farming and Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 7,935 olive branches, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Super Barry Brothers is the most popular video game in the nation, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, Viola has just been declared ruler of Dark Mistletoe in an international press conference, and Pastina has been named as Dark Mistletoe's national religion. Crime is totally unknown. Dark Mistletoe's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Pastina.

Dark Mistletoe is ranked 71,307th in the world and 3rd in Ligurian Sea for Largest Black Market, with 848 billion Standard Monetary Units.
