It is hard to draw a distinction between 1 Infinite Loop, the nation and Loop, the person, so you probably should read both pages. 1 Infinite Loop was a famous UN delegate of Template:Region since ancient days.
Region: The East Pacific
Near 1 May 2003 the nation of Infinite Loop arrived in the East Pacific, seeking to settle down in a small and sleepy region, however by the end of the month, dreams of Rest and relaxation were cast to the winds, as on 25 May Infinite Loop became Delegate. Three years later, on May 25th, 2006, Loop again hoped for rest. However, the day after turning over the Delegacy to Gnidrah, Loop was appointed Grand Vizier of the East Pacific, destroying his peaceful rest.
History of Infinite Loop, the nation
1 Infinite Loop was founded by the orphaned brothers Steveithicus on the plains of the island of Fat Japan* the orphans were raised by a Nekomimi who lived in an Apple Grove. From there on it is pretty dull as not much happened until WWII when a race of Humanoid Lizards called the Race* invaded Infinite Loop (the 1 only used for official state things) they were fought to a stalemate and peace was established between the two warring factions sharing lands and technology (hence why Loop is farther advanced than other nations in The East Pacific, with the exception of Codex and Packilvania.
The Nekomimi at one point made up only 9% of the population however in 1974 the General Secretary Chihiro Honda-san declared them to be protected and established preservation programs, they recovered dramatically and in 1999 were removed from the protected status and made full citizens.
Culture of Infinite Loop
The People of Infinite Loop are varied by race but not by culture, the general population is hard working, sensible and polite, outwardly they appear to live in a state of perpetual 1950's television, with modern bits only sticking out on in places it is impossible to conceal. They prefer for their technology to be semi Hidden, a television will when off and its cabinet closed resemble an old console Radio, their telephones while modern inside, appear to be from the 1970's such modesty permeates to the neighborhood as well, the corners have streetlamps and mailboxes that appear as they did 40 years ago, the roadsigns are 4' tall stone pillars with bronze plaques to tell you the street names, the stopsigns are small compared to the American variety and triangular, the People of Infinite Loop believe that to be ones best one cannot brag about it. however they maintain their quirks, where most countries have their currency in base ten, the Loop currency is in base 8, their bills range from the 1£ to the 2£ 4, 8, 16 32, 64 and 128£ notes, anything under 1£ is however counted in base ten.

however the upper grade models were unaffected by the weapon used by Packilvania
Religion in Infinite Loop
Even though Infinite Loop is Economically a Communist nation with members of the Communist party controlling the majority of the government, it is still ruled by its Emperor Kaito Fujiwara and as such, Religion is not forbidden as it is in other nations using the principals of Marx. The People of Infinite Loop practice a toned down version of the Ruler worship of the Pre WWII era they still pay homage to him as before, only a little less fanatical. the Most common representation of this is in the Race, who Honor the Emperor on their home world as well as Emperor (name again) Shinto and Buddhism represent the two largest faiths in Infinite Loop, making up together 55% of the population, Christianity and Judaism make up 10% and 4% respectively, with Atheists and Undecided bringing up the rear with a collective 31%.
In recent years, the Triumvirate, has officially Unrecognized the Islamic Faith, they apologise to the Followers of Mohammed, but due to the actions of their Brethren in Performing Terrorist and other subversive activities cannot officially recognize a faith that permits such to occur.
