Graveyardwatch 67

Population249 million


The Republic of Graveyardwatch 67 is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its compulsory military service and irreverence towards religion. The cynical population of 249 million Graveyardwatch 67ians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Welfare, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 21.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Graveyardwatch 67ian economy, worth 11.5 trillion guilders a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration, Retail, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 46,030 guilders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Graveyardwatch 67's national animal is the horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Graveyardwatch 67 is ranked 24,464th in the world and 1st in True Land for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 4,547.49 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
