Eastern Qerisiana

Population147 million

The Free Land of Eastern Qerisiana is a very large, safe nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, frequent executions, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, democratic population of 147 million Free Qerisiani are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 45.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Eastern Qerisian economy, worth 5.45 trillion Qerisianes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Tourism, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 37,068 Qerisianes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Strict term limits have been applied to all elected offices, the nation locks people up and tells them they're mad for compassion's sake, military pilots spend more time scraping feathers off their engines than flying their aircraft, and endangered species are effective hostages against the Eastern Qerisian military. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Eastern Qerisiana's national animal is the Desert Lark, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Eastern Qerisiana is ranked 68,136th in the world and 3,647th in The North Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 1,287.98 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
