The People's Republic of The Free City of Nelson is a huge, genial nation, notable for its vat-grown people, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 466 million Nelsonians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nelson City. The average income tax rate is 74.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The all-consuming Nelsonian economy, worth 41.0 trillion Commucoins 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 large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, Pizza Delivery, and Retail. 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 87,930 Commucoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Politicians sweat as journalists scour internet archives for any mention of them, vehicular homicide by Nelsonian ambassadors is a leading cause of death throughout the world's capital cities, hazmat suits are a common Nelsonian garb, and captains must wait until all rats are safe before jumping ship. Crime is almost non-existent. The Free City of Nelson's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
