The Free Land of Councilist Communes is a massive, safe nation, ruled by All-Land Council with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, sprawling nuclear power plants, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 1.401 billion Councilists 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 medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Komunna. The average income tax rate is 70.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Councilist economy, worth 195 trillion nones 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 black market in Tourism, Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. 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 139,410 nones, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Turning eighteen is often referred to as the 'Age of Aquarius', bizarre-looking creatures called 'beardogs' dominate wildlife preserves, a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, and replacement organs are grown in vats. Crime is totally unknown. Councilist Communes's national animal is the bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Atheism.
