The Country of Longsword01 is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Captain Laskey with an iron fist, and remarkable for its smutty television, compulsory gun ownership, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 5.91 billion Swords are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."
The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Environment, Law & Order, and Administration also on the agenda, while Welfare and International Aid aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Infinity. The average income tax rate is 99.2%.
The frighteningly efficient Longsword01ian economy, worth a remarkable 1,544 trillion Fruits and vegetableses 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 an enormous, deeply entrenched, highly specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing. 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 amazing 261,301 Fruits and vegetableses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.
Citizens who don't attend the nation's massive military parades tend to disappear overnight, Harry Potter books are banned, the government-sponsored autobiography 'A Captain Laskey For All Seasons' has only been bought by the most loyal of Captain Laskey's supporters, and genetic screening weeds out citizens whose legs don't bend easily at the knee. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Longsword01's national animal is the Rancor, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.
