Glorious Existence

Population17.92 billion


The United Socialist States of Glorious Existence is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its daily referendums, anti-smoking policies, and punitive income tax rates. The devout population of 17.92 billion Glorious Existenceans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 91.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Glorious Existencean economy, worth a remarkable 1,449 trillion Drudges a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly made up of the Tourism industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 80,883 Drudges, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Interest rates mysteriously drop whenever the CBGE Governor goes house hunting, NPCs in MMORPGs regularly interrupt cutscenes with OOC reminders that they aren't real people, the Glorious Existence City Film Festival recently voted 'Glorious Existencean Getting Hit By Football' as best film, and in a fit of passion Leader has shredded thirty years' worth of petitions. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Glorious Existence's national animal is the Leech, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Glorious Existence is ranked 3,752nd in the world and 73rd in the West Pacific for Best Weather, with 350 Meters Of Sunlight.
