|Category: Left-wing Utopia|
Regional Influence: Powerbroker
Location: The Great Experiment
The Holy Empire of Holy Empire of Holy Empire of Loaf is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Alx VI with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, free-roaming dinosaurs, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 8.884 billion Loafians 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Loaf City. The average income tax rate is 86.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The strong Loafian economy, worth 673 trillion Loaves a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 75,846 Loaves, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Religious leaders order congregants to love any neighbour who is just like themselves, vital intelligence-gathering activities are put on hold as agents return home for seduction training and advanced poker instruction, pandemics are over and done with by the time it takes to pass the nation's stringent border security, and there's nothing more gay than bleeding for your nation. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Holy Empire of Loaf's national animal is the Degosaurus, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Loafism.
