The Free Land of Filistinia is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.143 billion Filistinians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 74.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but sluggish Filistinian economy, worth 25.0 trillion pounds 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 Basket Weaving industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Trout Farming. Average income is 21,834 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Prolonged government investigations are a common revenge tactic among spurned significant others, 'Totally Not Partisan News' is a line item on the government budget, the endangered saltwater humpback leopard is only seen in captivity programs, and Filistinia has designated Filistinia City as its capital city. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Filistinia's national animal is the leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
