The Republic of Symmetria is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its irreverence towards religion, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 892 million Symmetrians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.
The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Healthcare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Middleton. The average income tax rate is 80.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The Symmetrian economy, worth 50.8 trillion coins a year, is highly specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 56,973 coins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Polygraphs are relegated to the dungeon exhibit in castle museums, constipated disaster survivors are rapidly learning that MRE is short for "Meal Requiring Enemas", road signs are getting harder to read under layers of knitted woolen cardigans, and drills and shovels have been banned as the government cracks down on any means of fracking. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Symmetria's national animal is the dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
