The Transhumanist Commune

The United Socialist States of The Transhumanist Commune is a huge, safe nation, notable for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 644 million Transhuman Communists 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 70.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Transhumanist Communean economy, worth 6.84 trillion Monetary Units 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 Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Basket Weaving, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 10,616 Monetary Units, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

In musicals everybody's a little bit racist, elevator music has been replaced by thrash metal played at maximum volume, the nation's universities are often mistaken for foreign embassies, and the "feminist protest" defence is increasingly common for cases of armed robbery. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Transhumanist Commune's national animal is the Virtual Supermind, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Transhumanist Commune is ranked 24,294th in the world and 1,025th in Balder for Nudest, with 198 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
