The Community of The Red Sox is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Dustin Pedroia with a fair hand, and notable for its punitive income tax rates, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic, devout population of 12.584 billion Sox Fans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, outspoken morass — juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Spirituality, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Boston. The average income tax rate is 72.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but sluggish Soxish economy, worth 247 trillion Baseballs a year, is highly specialized and led by the Cheese Exports industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 19,662 Baseballs, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Red Sox has designated Boston as its capital city and Dustin Pedroia has just been declared ruler of The Red Sox in an international press conference. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Red Sox's national animal is the Wally the Green Monster, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Red Sox is ranked 116,676th in the world and 1st in Massachusetts Bay Colony for Healthiest Citizens, with 1 Bananas Ingested Per Day.
