The Matriarchy of Mother Nature knows best is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its ban on automobiles, prohibition of alcohol, and devotion to social welfare.

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 40,913 Replanted trees, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
