The United Socialist States of Svetlakia is a massive, cultured nation, renowned for its complete lack of prisons, free-roaming dinosaurs, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.518 billion Svetlakians 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 enormous, liberal, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Welfare, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Herzberg. The average income tax rate is 93.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Svetlakian economy, worth 472 trillion credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 134,317 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
High-income earners pay a 100% tax rate, a faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles distance from the National Science Park, crowds of flag-burning protesters tend to accidentally become crowds of burning protesters, and wilderness-dwelling hermits are surprised to find railway stations on their front doorsteps. Crime is totally unknown. Svetlakia's national animal is the cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
