The Culture of Free Socialism is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by a loose-knit group of concerned Minds with a fair hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, daily referendums, and anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 32.135 billion Culture citizens 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 enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Social Policy, Healthcare, and Welfare are also considered important, while Administration and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Free Socialism Orbital. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Culture economy, worth an astonishing 15,927 trillion resources a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 495,633 resources, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Recent protests against birds flying too low have resulted in bloodshed, the Smalltopian embassy doubles as an electoral campaign headquarters, a government program is underway to revitalize Free Socialism's beaches, and scientists recently cloned the long-extinct feather-bellied Worker Ant. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Free Socialism's national animal is the Worker Ant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is atheism.

Free Socialism is ranked 25th in the world and 1st in Anticapitalist Alliance for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 1,058.25 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
