The Republic of XXXII Lyrical Founder Brigade is a massive, socially progressive nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, hatred of cheese, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 3.915 billion XXXII Lyrical Founder Brigadeans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 31.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant XXXII Lyrical Founder Brigadean economy, worth 39.1 trillion rubles 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, quite specialized black market in Trout Farming, Tourism, Woodchip Exports, 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 9,985 rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. XXXII Lyrical Founder Brigade's national animal is the turtle.

XXXII Lyrical Founder Brigade is ranked 214,690th in the world and 1st in The Peoples Union for Smartest Citizens, with 18.32 quips per hour.

Most Income Equality: 5,795th
