The Free Land of Councilist Communes is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by All-Land Council with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, keen interest in outer space, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 1.639 billion Councilists love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.
The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Komunna. The average income tax rate is 73.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Councilist economy, worth 238 trillion nones a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Tourism, Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 145,640 nones, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Vegetables are crisper thanks to CRISPR, citizens can only enjoy the splendor of the natural world in designated 'Majesty Appreciation' zones, the government builds houses for foreign newcomers, and captains must wait until all rats are safe before jumping ship. Crime is totally unknown. Councilist Communes's national animal is the bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Atheism.
