The United Socialist States of Hircea is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its ban on automobiles, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed population of 231 million Hirceans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 75.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The very strong Hircean economy, worth 18.7 trillion Hircs 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 dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 80,973 Hircs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Fur coats have become the latest fashion trend, child shoplifters spend half their youth behind bars, discarded pennies litter the streets, and nude art is becoming wildly popular. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hircea's national animal is the Emu, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
