The Hobbesian Metaphysician

The United Kingdom of The Hobbesian Metaphysician is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its national health service, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 2.949 billion Hobbesian Metaphysicianians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 75.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Hobbesian Metaphysicianian economy, worth 80.1 trillion Leviathan Pounds a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Pizza Delivery, Automobile Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 27,163 Leviathan Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Prime commercial land is being swamped with archaeological teams, divorce lawyers are found begging on the streets, invasive drug testing is now performed at elementary school sports days, and The Hobbesian Metaphysician's navy has been named the scourge of the seven thousand seas. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Hobbesian Metaphysician's national animal is the The Leviathan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Hobbesian Metaphysician is ranked 130,548th in the world and 5,587th in Lazarus for Most Pro-Market, scoring 19.25 on the Rand Index.
