Ebberia

The Community of Ebberia is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, museums and concert halls, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic population of 602 million Ebberians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 68.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Ebberian economy, worth 27.0 trillion Ebberian Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Cheese Exports. Average income is 44,890 Ebberian Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Older citizens lament over the loss of law and order, only 'organics' are permitted to be citizens, Ebberian novella fans become unusually flustered when thinking about Leader, and sex changes are routinely performed at Ebberia's hospitals. Crime is totally unknown. Ebberia's national animal is the Ebberian Rabbit, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ebberia is ranked 11,685th in the world and 133rd in Democratic Socialist Assembly for Least Corrupt Governments, with 94.3 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
