The Commonwealth of The Utopian Initiative is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Premier Mars Julien with a fair hand, and remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, ban on automobiles, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.011 billion Emancipated hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The large government prioritizes Education, although Welfare, Healthcare, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Prodromos. The average income tax rate is 79.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Emancipated economy, worth 128 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 fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 126,982 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
50% of adverts on children's television are for clothes made of cotton wool, referenda can be called for any law at the request of at least one third of the voting population, there's a literal nanny state for the legions of children taken by social services, and the "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The Prodromos Times is sold out. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Utopian Initiative's national animal is the Asian Elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
