Population298 million

The Empire of Garaipena is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its public floggings, zero percent divorce rate, and punitive income tax rates. The quiet, industrious population of 298 million Garaipenans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 67.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Garaipenan economy, worth 16.3 trillion rupees a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 54,571 rupees, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People caught mistreating Garaipena's flag generally wind up in a great deal of pain, burning twigs to keep warm while lost in the wild is now a felony, Pinkerton agents are called in to forcibly break up white collar strikes, and Occam's razor has sliced to pieces any childhood belief in Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Garaipena's national animal is the budgie, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Garaipena is ranked 134,564th in the world and 6,297th in The East Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 14.14 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
