Flourishing Southlands

Population1.933 billion


The Republic of Flourishing Southlands is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, compulsory military service, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 1.933 billion Brazilians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Welfare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 41.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Flourishing Southlandsian economy, worth 64.1 trillion Reais a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Cheese Exports, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 33,136 Reais, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, Harry Potter books are banned, the nation is ravaged by daily union strikes, and sneezing pedestrians are grabbed by alley-lurking doctors. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Flourishing Southlands's national animal is the Jaguar.

Flourishing Southlands is ranked 99,913th in the world and 63rd in Greater Middle East for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 932.67 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
