The Democratic Republic of Iueao is a massive, socially progressive nation, notable for its absence of drug laws, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, devout population of 3.026 billion Iueaoans 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 Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 66.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but sluggish Iueaoan economy, worth 58.7 trillion pounds 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 Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Furniture Restoration. 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 19,394 pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Female restaurant chefs are not allowed to have male customers, the government has certified several glow-in-the-dark athletes as drug free, newspapers may not print any negative stories about the government, and glamping Iueaoans won't sleep in a tent that doesn't include a Jacuzzi. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Iueao's national animal is the fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
