|Faith||The Flying Spaghetti Monster|
The People's Republic of The Plebeian States is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Zaphob Beeblebrox with a fair hand, and remarkable for its rum-swilling pirates, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and soft-spoken computers. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.635 billion Plebs 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Virtute Capitis. The average income tax rate is 92.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Plebeian economy, worth 199 trillion Rubles 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 mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 121,982 Rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Undersea volcanoes receive strongly worded letters for violating environmental regulations, high school bands practice by moonlight, nobody looks each other in the eye at neighborhood block parties any more, and the Finance Ministry posts hourly updates on where taxpayer money is spent. Crime is totally unknown. The Plebeian States's national animal is the Ox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is The Flying Spaghetti Monster.
