The United Socialist States of Svetlakia is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, keen interest in outer space, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.283 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, Healthcare, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Herzberg. The average income tax rate is 94.3%.
The frighteningly efficient Svetlakian economy, worth 598 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 139,789 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
