|Animal||Zombie Reindeer Cat|
The Holy Zombie Santa of Liphia is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Person-thing with a fair hand, and remarkable for its compulsory vegetarianism, lack of airports, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.284 billion Liphians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Existance-place-thing. The average income tax rate is 91.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Liphian economy, worth 141 trillion bitcoins 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 Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an impressive 110,055 bitcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, therapists can always squeeze in another house-call, ice-filled coffins are ominously positioned in the corner of every hospital ward, and babysitters are a thing of the past. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Liphia's national animal is the Zombie Reindeer Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Pastafarianism.
