The United Socialist States of Visdenburg is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 265 million Visdenburgians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Healthcare, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Visdeny. The average income tax rate is 68.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but underdeveloped Visdenburgian economy, worth 7.79 trillion Visdenic Pounds a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Trout Farming, and Retail. Average income is 29,406 Visdenic Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Refugees from other nations are flocking to Visdenburg's border, asking 'does my bum look big in this?' leads to 30 hours of self-esteem classes, traffic cops spend most of their work-hours calculating citizens' monthly income, and builders across Visdenburg are blocked up with orders for new public loos. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Visdenburg's national animal is the Grey Seal, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.
