The Republic of Hyphen is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Nicodemius with an even hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 1.35 billion Hyphenians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capolity. The average income tax rate is 51.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Hyphenian economy, worth 117 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 fairly diversified, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 86,732 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Travel bureaus double as recruiting centers for national intelligence agencies, you're only as old as you feel, welfare funding has recently gone through the roof, and island residents must resort to canoes and sailboats to get to work. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hyphen's national animal is the falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Agnosticism.
