The Free Land of Moonshining is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, absence of drug laws, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 447 million Moonshiners are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Social Policy. The average income tax rate is 55.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The strong Moonshiningian economy, worth 34.1 trillion Klubecks 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 black market in Tourism, Information Technology, Pizza Delivery, and Retail. 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 76,178 Klubecks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Only AIs know why the nation is rapidly increasing its semiconductor stockpile, social networking sites have discussion groups devoted to planning terrorist attacks, the subway is dead quiet in early afternoons, and spoiler warnings are now given out before political speeches. Crime is well under control. Moonshining's national animal is the Axolotl, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.
