The Theocracy of Intelligent Design is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its complete lack of prisons, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 25.377 billion Intelligent Designians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Welfare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 70.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant Intelligent Designian economy, worth 403 trillion crosses 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 a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Cheese Exports, Furniture Restoration, Book Publishing, and Woodchip Exports. 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 15,919 crosses, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Membership in the state-owned Church of Intelligent Design is mandatory and all other faith organisations are banned, abortions are carried out secretly in shady backstreet clinics, nursing mothers are often arrested for indecent exposure, and a large concrete wall is being built around the country's borders. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Intelligent Design's national animal is the lamb, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Intelligent Design is ranked 9,223rd in the world and 1st in Bad Science for Most Secular, with 94.74 Atheism Rate.
