The Republic of Fission is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 326 million Fissionians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 66.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Fissionian economy, worth 11.1 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery and Tourism. Average income is 34,184 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas, rugby players that knock each other over always stop to make sure the other fellow is okay, teams of painters are converting road signs from horse lengths to kilometers, and nobody looks each other in the eye at neighborhood block parties any more. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fission's national animal is the porpoise, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Fission is ranked 45,985th in the world and 1,526th in the South Pacific for Lowest Crime Rates, with 70.58 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
