The Republic of Green Minnesota is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Atw Davis with a fair hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.473 billion Minnesotans 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.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded, outspoken government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Central City. The average income tax rate is 93.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Green Minnesotan economy, worth 420 trillion Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 76,811 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Knitters are arrested for carrying needles in their bags, Atw Davis's handshakes with opposition leaders usually lead to thumb wars, the bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Central City, and the government funds large training centres to turn Foxes into functioning members of society. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Green Minnesota's national animal is the Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Kolyism.

Green Minnesota is ranked 188,805th in the world and 582nd in The Communist Bloc for Most Pro-Market, scoring -83.11 on the Rand Index.
