The Republic of I HATE PHYSICS is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its lack of airports, state-planned economy, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, devout population of 746 million I HATE PHYSICSians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The large, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 43.0%.

The I HATE PHYSICSian economy, worth 41.4 trillion Einsteins 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 Beef-Based Agriculture, Trout Farming, Cheese Exports, and Retail. 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 55,463 Einsteins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

Everyone suspects that everyone else is a terrorist, genetic screening weeds out citizens whose legs don't bend easily at the knee, terrified tympanists are finding themselves on the front lines armed only with kettledrums, and contestants on I HATE PHYSICS's Got Talent are screened by the government to make sure that they actually have talent. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. I HATE PHYSICS's national animal is the physics problem, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

I HATE PHYSICS is ranked 169,494th in the world and 45th in Oofery for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 48.52 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
