The Country of Longsword01 is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Captain Laskey with an iron fist, and remarkable for its teetotalling pirates, lack of airports, and prohibition of alcohol. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 4.336 billion Swords are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."
The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, well-organized morass — prioritizes Defense, with Environment, Administration, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Welfare is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Infinity. The average income tax rate is 98.3%.
The frighteningly efficient Longsword01ian economy, worth 681 trillion Fruits and vegetableses 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, highly specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Cheese Exports, and Basket Weaving. 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 an impressive 157,094 Fruits and vegetableses, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest-growing field, the nation is automatically assumed to be the source of all unmarked weapons, the national anthem is a rather effective sleeping aid, and the populace has developed a mortal fear of the woods. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Longsword01's national animal is the Lekgoto worm, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.
