The Galactic Muppets of Darth Kermit is a gargantuan, cultured nation, notable for its public floggings, compulsory military service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, devout population of 29 billion Galactic Muppets are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 30.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The Darth Kermitian economy, worth 862 trillion Green Backs a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 29,742 Green Backs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.
The muppet is protected from hunting and slowly coming back from the brink of extinction, televangelists flaunt their expensive cars when they attend charity events, there have been sightings of people walking around dressed in nothing but leopard-skin g-strings for 'religious reasons', and euthanasia is legal. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Darth Kermit's national animal is the muppet, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
