The People's Republic of Babysitting is a large, orderly nation, notable for its state-planned economy and absence of drug laws. The cynical population of 86 million Babysittingians are ruled with an iron fist by the socialist government, which grants its people the freedom to do whatever they like so long as it doesn't involve getting richer than anybody else or challenging the government.
The large, liberal, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Welfare, with Healthcare, Education, and Spirituality also on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 40.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but underdeveloped Babysittingian economy, worth 2.56 trillion silver scats 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, fairly diversified black market in Soda Sales, Pizza Delivery, Cheese Exports, and Furniture Restoration. 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 29,795 silver scats, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Babysitting's national animal is the Flying Monkey.
