The United Socialist States of Saybel is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 681 million Saybelians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Venalia. The average income tax rate is 80.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The very strong Saybelian economy, worth 57.5 trillion Dollars a year, is highly specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 84,472 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Children are brainwashed at a young age to accept "love and peace!" as a way of life, religious organizations are being forced to leave the country or pay income taxes like everybody else, the police are tightening their grip on alcohol smugglers, and captains must wait until all rats are safe before jumping ship. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Saybel's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
