The Republic of Hyphen is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Nicodemius with an even hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 1.82 billion Hyphenians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capolity. The average income tax rate is 59.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The powerhouse Hyphenian economy, worth 151 trillion dollars 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 dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Book Publishing, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 83,104 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Diplomats shake hands with their right and hide a poison dagger in their left, strict term limits have been applied to all elected offices, Nicodemius's iHouse is so intelligent that it manages its own social media accounts, and ersatz chicken has left the nation's citizens with a bad taste in their mouths. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hyphen's national animal is the falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Agnosticism.
