The Free Land of Magination is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 225 million Maginationians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 73.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Maginationian economy, worth 5.51 trillion Nos 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, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, Furniture Restoration, and Uranium Mining. 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 24,471 Nos, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Mothers are routinely abandoning their children in the name of women's rights, the book "Zen and the Art of Dog Maintenance" is inexplicably a worldwide success, children aren't allowed to chew their pencils until they get home from school, and it is not politically correct to suspect that a serially convicted burglar might steal again. Crime is totally unknown. Magination's national animal is the Bass, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Magination is ranked 111,714th in the world and 68th in Anarchy for Highest Crime Rates, with 3.04 Crimes Per Hour.
