The All Time Favourite Republic of Indusse is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by BASKAR H KUMAR with an even hand, and notable for its smutty television, national health service, and fear of technology. The hard-nosed, humorless, devout population of 7.97 billion Indussiates are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Hind City. The average income tax rate is 81.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient An Indussean economy, worth a remarkable 1,142 trillion RUPEESES a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Tourism. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 143,298 RUPEESES, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Veterans' meet-ups involve a lot of tail sniffing, exceptionally talented workers are praised more than Revolutionary heroes, liberals and conservatives try to disqualify each other's candidates on the grounds that "their ideas would never work in the real world", and BASKAR H KUMAR is too busy listening to praise to get any work done. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Indusse's national animal is the DOVE, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is HINDUISM.

Indusse is ranked 198,526th in the world and 119th in India for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -13.3 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
