The Free Land of Horplers is a massive, genial nation, renowned for its punitive income tax rates, restrictive gun laws, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 1.463 billion Horplersians 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 large, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 69.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Horplersian economy, worth 47.6 trillion guilders a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is 32,539 guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government sends submarines to retrieve bodies from shipwrecked submarines, the countryside is shrouded by wind farms, bars are packed at all hours, and a fashion designer has been arrested for inciting hatred after claiming redheads couldn't pull off vermillion. Crime is totally unknown. Horplers's national animal is the porpoise, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Horplers is ranked 48,275th in the world and 224th in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Least Corrupt Governments, with 93.77 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
