The Commonwealth of The Utopian Initiative is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Premier Mars Julien with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, pith helmet sales, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.393 billion Emancipated are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The large, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Prodromos. The average income tax rate is 87.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Emancipated economy, worth 186 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 quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Average income is an impressive 133,705 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests, euthanasia is legal, the art of conversation has been rediscovered, and reporters who negatively comment on politicians' haircuts are cut from the news. 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 octopus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.
