A Place Somewhere

The Place of A Place Somewhere is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Dave Beckham with an even hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, daily referendums, and complete absence of social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 1.9 billion Somewherians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Somewheria. The average income tax rate is 69.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Place Somewherean economy, worth 320 trillion Somethings a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 168,430 Somethings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

The upper class have been throwing riots after hunting was recently banned, mall countdown clocks warn that there are only 364 more shopping days until Maxxmas, debate rages over whether ground fish guts can be spread on fields, and a few immigrants are better than no immigrants according to Dave Beckham. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. A Place Somewhere's national animal is the Spotted Parrot.

A Place Somewhere is ranked 16,234th in the world and 499th in the South Pacific for Smartest Citizens, with 70.82 quips per hour.
