The Republic of FashSmash Force 005 is a tiny, socially progressive nation, notable for its state-planned economy, hatred of cheese, and absence of drug laws. The democratic population of 9 million FashSmash Force 005ians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
The medium-sized, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Healthcare, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 26.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The basket case FashSmash Force 005ian economy, worth 74.5 billion Smashes 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 Trout Farming, Basket Weaving, and Automobile 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 8,281 Smashes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Crime is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. FashSmash Force 005's national animal is the Smashing.
