The Commonwealth of Great Ranges is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 693 million Rangers enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.
The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Watikide. The average income tax rate is 67.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but inefficient Great Rangesian economy, worth 30.7 trillion Inkles a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Tourism, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 44,249 Inkles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Editorials that criticize the government are legally obligated to display the "pants on fire" warning, young girls aren't having a ball but they are enjoying themselves, it turns out that money can buy you happiness, and busy commuters no longer hear the cries of "I want some more!" on the nation's streets. Crime is totally unknown. Great Ranges's national animal is the Freckled Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
