The Rising Eagle of Inspiratus is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Claudius Gracchus with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, rampant corporate plagiarism, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 4.498 billion Inspiratusians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Urbs Altus. The average income tax rate is 69.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Inspiratusian economy, worth 782 trillion Monetas a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 173,920 Monetas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Couples kissing on the street are detained for 'unlawful exchange of genetic material', a ban on unsolicited cold calling in all forms is in effect, construction workers evacuate work sites after finding sharp rocks on the ground, and the nation is ravaged by daily union strikes. Crime is totally unknown. Inspiratus's national animal is the Owl, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Illuminatism.

Inspiratus is ranked 66,351st in the world and 3,479th in The North Pacific for Most Income Equality, scoring 52.79 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
