The Republic of Liberum Hibernia is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 433 million Hibernians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.
The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Law & Order, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dubhlinn. The average income tax rate is 76.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The Hibernian economy, worth 26.0 trillion Credits a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is 59,994 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
They say that Hibernians made a dessert and called it peace, drills and shovels have been banned as the government cracks down on any means of fracking, confused-looking pigeons slide gently off frictionless window ledges, and authorities are looking for a stool pigeon to rat out who is stealing food from pigeon toilets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Liberum Hibernia's national animal is the Gizka, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
