An Hyperbolic Cosine

Population19.675 billion

Animalraja the elephant

The Democratic Republic of An Hyperbolic Cosine is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic population of 19.675 billion Hyperbolic Cosineans 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken morass — prioritizes Welfare, although Education and Healthcare are also considered important. The average income tax rate is 76.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Hyperbolic Cosinean economy, worth 208 trillion arches 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 Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Trout Farming, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 10,601 arches, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Voting is voluntary and surveillance cameras are banned. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. An Hyperbolic Cosine's national animal is the raja the elephant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

An Hyperbolic Cosine is ranked 59,205th in the world and 1st in Missouri for Most Devout, with 239.44 Prayers Per Hour.
