The 📷 🎥🎬👀 of Please Be Kind and Rewind is a colossal, genial nation, ruled by Carrie Onposing with a fair hand, and remarkable for its otherworldly petting zoo, national health service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 6.114 billion Clerks enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Strikapose. The average income tax rate is 81.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient VHS economy, worth a remarkable 1,311 trillion Cassettes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Book Publishing, and Soda Sales. Average income is an amazing 214,463 Cassettes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens select which government department gets their income tax Cassettes each year, helping grandma with her Misgendering 101 homework is a national rite of passage, the VHS Intelligence Agency has put 'Project Quantum Refrigerator' on hold indefinitely, and the nation's democracy attracts huddled masses yearning to breathe free. Crime is totally unknown. Please Be Kind and Rewind's national animal is the Betamax, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Vogue.

Please Be Kind and Rewind is ranked 176,712th in the world and 263rd in Spiritus for Most Extreme, scoring 11.49 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
