The Utopian People's Republic of Love and Nature is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Spokesperson Moilanen with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, daily referendums, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 8.078 billion Love and Natureans 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, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Gaia. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Love and Naturean economy, worth a remarkable 1,900 trillion thoughts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 235,234 thoughts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians and casino owners who so much as wander into the same room are arrested on the spot, citizens are exhausted from weekly general elections, political talk shows often have children as guests whenever they need commentary on world religions, and late night talk show hosts are having a field day over Spokesperson Moilanen's questionably sane new coalition partners. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Love and Nature's national animal is the canis lupus, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Cosmic consciousness and love.

Love and Nature is ranked 30,624th in the world and 71st in Forest for Rudest Citizens, with 85.61 Insults Per Minute.
