The Hippie Commune of Ilovebenderdotcomland is a massive, genial nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, fear of technology, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 2.385 billion Hippies are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hometown. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 79.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Ilovebenderdotcomlandian economy, worth 217 trillion Bender-Bucks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. Average income is 91,306 Bender-Bucks, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 264,004 per year while the poor average 25,041, a ratio of 10.5 to 1.

Emergency services don't respond to trailer park fires, confused drunks wake up to irate drill sergeants whipping them into shape, running away is an essential part of the elite forces' hand-to-hand training, and airplanes have giant grilles on their noses to knock drones out of their path. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ilovebenderdotcomland's national animal is the Sloth, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ilovebenderdotcomland is ranked 18,422nd in the world and 3rd in Oregon for Most Pacifist, with 121.45 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
