Grand Symphosium Philharmonie

Population243 million

The Community of Grand Symphosium Philharmonie is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, public floggings, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 243 million Philharmonie visitors are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 13.5%.

The all-consuming Grand Symphosium Philharmony economy, worth 23.9 trillion gold bars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. Average income is 98,168 gold bars, with the richest citizens earning 7.2 times as much as the poorest.

The government mails weekly updates on the new anti-junk mail laws to every citizen, raindances intended to summon storms instead attract tourists, restaurant owners fear visits from government officials more than the actual food critics, and power stations shutting down at night has made bedtime reading tricky. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Grand Symphosium Philharmonie's national animal is the leprechaun, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Grand Symphosium Philharmonie is ranked 66,669th in the world and 2,352nd in The North Pacific for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 52.16 Whatever.
