Dirkistan

Population894 million

Animal3 Headed Dragon

The Republic of Dirkistan is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its complete lack of prisons, free-roaming dinosaurs, and smutty television. The hard-nosed population of 894 million Dirkistanians 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, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 57.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Dirkistanian economy, worth 99.0 trillion Dirks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Retail, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 110,780 Dirks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Invasive species are hunted by the gendarmerie, family isn't who you're born with but who you abandon in foreign countries, interest rates mysteriously drop whenever the CBD Governor goes house hunting, and the standardised national curriculum requires that all-male classes be taught why they have periods. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dirkistan's national animal is the 3 Headed Dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Dirkistan is ranked 22,544th in the world and 753rd in the South Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 68,219.48 Standard Monetary Units.
