The Protectorate of AfforeStation is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Theodore Roosevelt with a fair hand, and renowned for its triple-decker prams, complete lack of prisons, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 1.568 billion environmentalists 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 large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nairobi in Kenya. The average income tax rate is 67.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong tree hugger economy, worth 101 trillion leaves 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, quite specialized black market in Tourism, Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. 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 64,976 leaves, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Decongestants have replaced leaves in street transactions, Nairobi in Kenya spends billions upgrading public transport, the police have reaffirmed their tough stance on drugs, and arms manufacturers and mild-mannered journalists have been outed as superheroes. Crime, especially youth-related, is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. AfforeStation's national animal is the dodo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

AfforeStation is ranked 10,040th in the world and 111th in Forest for Least Corrupt Governments, with 94.41 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
