The Matriarchy of Lovable Weirdos is a very large, socially progressive nation, notable for its complete lack of prisons kinder ways of rehabilitation. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 136 million enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent helpful government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Education, although the Environment and Social Equality are on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 62% 10%, and even higher for the wealthy. A healthy private sector is dominated by the Tourism industry.

Most citizens in Lovable Weirdos are abject pyrophobes disliking of fire after extremely graphic non-sugar-coated pamphlets were mailed nationwide by the government, Lovable Weirdos successfully hosted the The Kodiak Republic Olympics, libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, and Lovable Weirdos's famous countrysides are shrouded by wind farms using alternative energy fuels. Crime is totally unknown. Lovable Weirdos's national animal is the l33t, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the buck.

The Republic of The shee species is an ancient, clever and environmentally stunning nation renowned for entirely lacking common sense. Its compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 8 million have been known to prove this by genetically engineering mice that dislike biscuits (but are rather keen on used tea-bags) rather than inventing a sensible mousetrap and other such madness.

The small, remarkably uncorrupt, liberal government is mainly concerned with Social Welfare, although Education and getting those eggs out of their hair are on the agenda. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 14%. A small but healthy private sector is led by the Book Publishing industry, followed by robotics and GMing new breeds on norn, the nationanal animal as pets.

The government is avowedly atheist, surveillance cameras are rare in privet hands, banned in goverment ones, euthanasia is legal, and punitive tariffs protect local industry along with the way that shee creations are just better. Crime is moderate, probably because of the country's utter lack of prisons. The shee species's national animal is the norn, which is also it's fovored pet, and its currency is the albian credit.

Its hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 1.488 billion Dinos are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the production of the Humans enslaved by the Dinosaur majority.

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic government is mainly concerned with Law & Order, although Defence and Commerce are on the agenda. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dino City. The average income tax rate is 21%, but much higher for the wealthy. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Uranium Mining, Soda Sales, and Automobile Manufacturing industries.

Saurisia has been greatly criticized for its ignorance of the plight of pitiful Humans, motorists' locations are constantly tracked by intelligence and law enforcement agencies, the government is avowedly atheist, and record sales of 'child-whacking sticks' have been recorded. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Saurisia's national animal is the Caveman, which teeters on the brink of destruction due to the Government's anti-Human racism though thankfully, they're to be replaced by Lizards, and its currency is the Dino Dollar.

It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kashopolis. The average income tax rate is 100%.

The Empire of Banshee of primordia is a very old, quite warlike nation, notable for its compulsory military service. Its cruel, hard-working population of 5 million enjoy almost no civil freedoms, but never pay attention to the laws like that anyway, while business tends to be even more regulated.

The medium-sized, liberal government is effectively ruled by the Department of Defense, with areas such as Social Welfare and Religion & Spirituality receiving almost no funds by comparison. The average income tax rate is 17%. A large private sector is led by the hunting industry, followed by the creation of new technology and using GM to make new sorts of grendel.

Crime is a serious problem as when out of uniform the police force and some of the best-armed crooks look strangely similar... The banshee of primordia's national animal is the banshee grendel, which is also it's favorite pet and animal to hunt with and its currency is the scalegem.

The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising fourteen-year-old boys selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

The government seizes private property for the 'good of the people', Members of Parliament are often found living in cardboard boxes lving in too much luxury, heavy industry must go to expensive lengths to dispose of waste, and rumours have it that a secret police is responsible for the recent spate of missing persons removal of national enemies. Crime is well under control, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Toraston's national animal is the owl, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the euro.

It is necessary to expose the false propaganda of the imperialists and thoroughly dispel the illusion that the imperialists will give up their positions in the colonies and dependent countries with good will. It is wrong to try to avoid the struggle against imperialism under the pretext that independence and revolution are important, but that peace is still more precious. The oppressed peoples can liberate themselves only through struggle. This is a simple and clear truth confirmed by history.
