Am Echad

Population6.51 billion

LeaderCaptain Clifford Carnage


The Socialist Revolutionaries of Am Echad is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Captain Clifford Carnage with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 6.51 billion Am Echadists are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of SimpleCity. The average income tax rate is 75.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Am Echadist economy, worth 559 trillion florins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 86,005 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Genetic research is temporarily tied up in government red tape, Doves are frequently shot for looking at people 'in a funny way', orphanages are closing their doors as the government forces parents to actually raise their children, and 4-year-olds are often found reminiscing about the 'good old days'. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Am Echad's national animal is the Dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Yahadus.

Am Echad is ranked 31,005th in the world and 957th in The East Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 884.5 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
