The Eudaemonium of Dr George is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Sam with a fair hand, and remarkable for its national health service, complete lack of prisons, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 28.237 billion Philosophers live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The tiny, corrupt, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Georgetown. The average income tax rate is 1.9%.

The frighteningly efficient philosophical economy, worth a remarkable 4,952 trillion gold coins a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Tourism. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 175,374 gold coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.

Airplane passengers have been known to stuff pillows in their jackets to get extra arm room, children must make a homemade spinach and ricotta rotolo by high school or be held back, rich people sell their mansions to pay for endless rows of mobile homes, and atheism is seen as a prerequisite for political power. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Dr George's national animal is the velociraptor, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Empiricism.

Dr George is ranked 134,810th in the world and 86th in Philosophy 115 for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -7.35 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
