Acurllo Island

Population378 million


The Commonwealth of Acurllo Island is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its ban on automobiles, compulsory vegetarianism, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 378 million Acurllo Islandians 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 large government prioritizes Education, although Administration, Healthcare, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 39.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Acurllo Islandian economy, worth 13.2 trillion Plattinos a year, is dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Tourism, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 35,036 Plattinos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Literally voiceless people are unable to protest when food and water are denied to them, citizens receive notices of disenfranchisement along with their parking tickets, prisoners regularly escape detention posing as scarecrows, and jail house rock has been replaced with jail house golden oldies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Acurllo Island's national animal is the Dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Acurllo Island is ranked 147,862nd in the world and 3rd in The Islands of Paradise for Most Extreme, scoring 12.43 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
