The Free Land of Love-is-love is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, national health service, and soft-spoken computers. The compassionate, democratic population of 651 million Loves hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 21.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Accepting economy, worth 33.8 trillion Loves a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Soda Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 51,991 Loves, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Farting etiquette is taught in schools, the government has declared victoria over the cheese menace, the Man in the Plastic Mask has been imprisoned in the Capital Penitentiary, and sleep-deprived officials are known to collapse after late night revision for their examinations. Crime is relatively low. Love-is-love's national animal is the Rainbow, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Love-is-love is ranked 102,642nd in the world and 4,187th in the South Pacific for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 21.73 Effective Tax Rate.
