Crawdad Republic

Population230 million


The Republic of Crawdad Republic is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 230 million Crawdad Republicians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.1%.

The very strong Crawdad Republician economy, worth 15.2 trillion bitcoins a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Door-to-door Insurance Sales industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Gambling. Average income is 65,935 bitcoins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 189,480 per year while the poor average 18,238, a ratio of 10.4 to 1.

Male cubicle workers stand up every time a woman enters the room, childhood friends of Leader are living it large abroad at the taxpayers' expense, the media have begun calling the government treasury "Leader's stash", and Crawdad Republician novella fans become unusually flustered when thinking about Leader. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Crawdad Republic's national animal is the Crab, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Crawdad Republic is ranked 81,972nd in the world and 15th in West Pacific Crab Sanctuary for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 3,921.21 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
