The United Socialist States of Svetlakia is a massive, cultured nation, renowned for its otherworldly petting zoo, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 3.878 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, with Environment, Welfare, and Healthcare also on the agenda, 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 93.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Svetlakian economy, worth 526 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 135,685 credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government frequently panders to parents with boutique tax credits, the new national campaign exhorts men to "Show Some Class - Don't Sit On Your Ass", bins outnumber trees in city parks, and pre-takeoff checks last longer than the flights themselves. Crime is totally unknown. Svetlakia's national animal is the cow, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Svetlakia is ranked 152,581st in the world and 7,567th in The North Pacific for Most Avoided, scoring 0.35 on the Kardashian Reflex Score.
