|Capital||The Commune of Marxigrad|
The Socialist Union of The Wretched of this Earth is a massive, genial nation, ruled by The People with a fair hand, and remarkable for its ban on automobiles, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.884 billion Wretched of this Earthians 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of The Commune of Marxigrad. The average income tax rate is 91.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Wretched of this Earthian economy, worth 258 trillion Popular Dollars 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 Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming and Tourism. Average income is 89,567 Popular Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
The People's handshakes with opposition leaders usually lead to thumb wars, the people elect the Supreme Court justices directly, multiple polls have christened the newly-formed Filibuster Committee as "the least efficient government bureaucracy", and rioting during the nation's hosting of ORDER caused one million Popular Dollars of property damage. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Wretched of this Earth's national animal is the Bee, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Marxism.
