Here’s my son’s imaginary land – as described in an ‘information book’ he’s writing about it on my laptop – of which he is, of course, supreme dictator (as well as being its most famous panda trainer):
‘In Maxyland there are a lot of shops which sell furniture, when people come they go to buy furniture but the thing they don’t know is that the furniture is very cheap but still outstanding, so people beg to go here.
‘Our business are very well organised for when the people come to try out or go to work, they are very kind. There are also free bars close to offices (I couldn’t believe it when I first knew about it).
‘In London houses are very expensive, but in Maxyland you don’t have to be rich at all to buy a house because they are only £1 for most houses.
‘Some people say it is a beautiful place which is very kind to the community which owns Maxyland.
‘All the charities are extra kind and pay their taxes, not like many other countries in the world today.
‘Most of the areas are like some other places like New York and Berlin.
‘In the main cities in Maxyland, people come from all over the world and have a happy life and relax with famous people from the country and some of their friends.
‘All people in Maxyland have different clothes and shoes. All clothes in Mayxyland are on special offer, not like any other countries on the planet, which is astonishing.
‘Maxyland is very good looking as you might have gust (my teacher says this a lot) because it is modern which is not surprising.’
So… free bars, nice furniture, cheap clothes, celebs, rock bottom property prices, a well-structured tax system, and a bit like New York or Berlin. Fantastic! When can I go?
