The United Socialist States of Plantaining is a massive, cultured nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, ban on automobiles, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.472 billion Plantains enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.
The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Plantaintopia. The average income tax rate is 78.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but stagnant Plantainingian economy, worth 36.0 trillion Bitcoins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is 24,470 Bitcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Foreigners with shady pasts are fleeing the country, children are raised bilingual from an early age, groups of government workers are declared protected tribes if they venture too deep into the Capitol, and the army lures cannon fodder with promises of a college education. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Plantaining's national animal is the Wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
