Currencysoviet Etople

The People's Republic of Etople is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its avant-garde cinema, pith helmet sales, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 596 million Etopleans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 73.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Etoplean economy, worth 14.7 trillion soviet Etoples a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Gambling and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 24,678 soviet Etoples, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Traffic jams are a common sight due to construction work from a massive overhaul of the nation's freeways, Etople has designated Etople City as its capital city, there's a revolutionary culture in the nation's dairies, and the education system is being cleansed of all corporate influence. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Etople's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Etople is ranked 81,808th in the world and 3,196th in The East Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 73.04 Years.
