The Kingdom of Livingstone is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, free-roaming dinosaurs, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 720 million Livingstoneans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."
The medium-sized, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Eghosa. The average income tax rate is 55.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The all-consuming Livingstonean economy, worth 68.2 trillion Stars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 94,696 Stars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.
Road signs are getting harder to read under layers of knitted woolen cardigans, even the nation's brussel sprouts are delicious and nutritious, mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest-growing field, and banning party poppers has been a real party pooper. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Livingstone's national animal is the Dove, which is also the nation's favorite main course.
