Graveyardwatch 85

Population1.262 billion


The Republic of Graveyardwatch 85 is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The quiet, industrious population of 1.262 billion Graveyardwatch 85ians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Spirituality. The average income tax rate is 70.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Graveyardwatch 85ian economy, worth 14.4 trillion florins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Pizza Delivery, Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 11,387 florins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Graveyardwatch 85's national animal is the dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Graveyardwatch 85 is ranked 143,807th in the world and 1st in The North Heart for Highest Crime Rates, with 2.5 Crimes Per Hour.
