The Queendom of Mussel is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, public floggings, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 416 million Musselians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.
The large, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 54.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but underdeveloped Musselian economy, worth 18.3 trillion Muscles a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 43,922 Muscles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
School plays were recently banned due to concerns of child endangerment, orphans would rather live their life of luxury than be adopted by prospective parents, citizens are remarkably well involved in the political process, and X-Files ratings have hit an all-time low. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Mussel's national animal is the Mussel, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
