Free Culture

Population14.147 billion


The Empire of Free Culture is a gargantuan, cultured nation, notable for its digital currency, public floggings, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, cheerful population of 14.147 billion Free Cultureans 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 tiny government is primarily concerned with Education, although Industry, Healthcare, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 7.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Free Culturean economy, worth a remarkable 3,339 trillion denaris a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 236,035 denaris, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The government has begun selling heroin and ecstasy to help fund its projects, scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes, the police double as repo men, and the parliament building has installed a revolving door. Crime is totally unknown. Free Culture's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Free Culture is ranked 81,265th in the world and 4,307th in The North Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring 802.64 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
