The Republic of Khushvad is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its daily referendums, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 569 million Khushwaaris 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 morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jagayam. The average income tax rate is 74.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Khushvadian economy, worth 20.3 trillion Parols 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 led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Pizza Delivery, and Soda Sales. Average income is 35,664 Parols, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The thin blue line is composed of picketing police officers demanding better pensions, body doubles and armed bodyguards escort witnesses to and from courtrooms, male med students learning female anatomy do so with their eyes tightly closed, and board shorts have replaced board rooms. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Khushvad's national animal is the Hummingbird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Khushvad is ranked 231,678th in the world and 6th in Pengia Terrum for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 38.79 Whatever.
