The Republic of Hyphen is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Nicodemius with an even hand, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, state-planned economy, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 2.247 billion Hyphenians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capolity. The average income tax rate is 56.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The all-consuming Hyphenian economy, worth 195 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. Average income is 87,169 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Programmers often reinvent the wheel, the government is a proud sponsor of the National Gaming Association, senior citizens can usually be found doing heavy manual labour, and Hyphenians are regularly fired for looking at MyFace during their lunch breaks. 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.
