The Fiefdom of SendTheKidsToTheMines is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its complete lack of prisons, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 784 million SendTheKidsToTheMinesians 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 82.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse SendTheKidsToTheMinesian economy, worth 74.9 trillion Queequays a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Basket Weaving. Average income is 95,520 Queequays, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Paranoid museum guards keep a lookout for any animated displays attempting to escape the premises after dark, space research funding has hit a recent high while several military bases are being closed down, abattoirs are struggling with the directive to 'wait until the animal dies of a ripe old age', and family bonding sessions are considered immoral and are banned. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. SendTheKidsToTheMines's national animal is the Mantis, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

SendTheKidsToTheMines is ranked 4,131st in the world and 9th in United Kingdom for Least Corrupt Governments, with 95.45 percentage of bribes refused.
