The Merry Socialist Pizza Slice of That Place Where We Live is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Community Anarch with a fair hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, complete lack of prisons, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 9.12 billion Inhabitants hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, outspoken morass — prioritizes Education, with Environment, Healthcare, and Industry also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Koinonia. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Inhabiting economy, worth a remarkable 1,944 trillion Nothings a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. Average income is an amazing 213,162 Nothings, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is not politically correct to suspect that a serially convicted burglar might steal again, tourists are forbidden to enter Native Inhabiting lands, children must be board certified to append "Jr" to their name, and angry citizens complain that there isn't enough geographical diversity on the new banknotes. Crime is totally unknown. That Place Where We Live's national animal is the Monstrous Arachnomorph, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Pluralism.

That Place Where We Live is ranked 143,775th in the world and 154th in The Internationale for Largest Black Market, with 87.9 billion Standard Monetary Units.
