The Rogue Nation of Anfield Bindippers is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 519 million Bindippers 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 Spirituality, Welfare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fenway II. The average income tax rate is 71.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Bindipper economy, worth 17.9 trillion Handouts 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 Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Soda Sales. Average income is 34,442 Handouts, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Economic planning is exalted as a human art form, no personal detail is too tiny for the suede-denim census police, Anfield Bindippers has designated Fenway II as its capital city, and the nation's school children are fluent in Klingon but lack basic mathematical skills. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Anfield Bindippers's national animal is the Cockroach, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Anfield Bindippers is ranked 139,902nd in the world and 6,232nd in The North Pacific for Rudest Citizens, with 41.8 Insults Per Minute.
