Great Patrick

Population2.981 billion

LeaderKurt Markson


The Republic of Great Patrick is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Kurt Markson with a fair hand, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, free-roaming dinosaurs, and suspicion of poets. The hard-working, democratic population of 2.981 billion Patricians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Herrisbourge. The average income tax rate is 19.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Patrician economy, worth 323 trillion Patmarks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 108,452 Patmarks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

There's more vermin than ever on the metro, many politicians are serving jail time for minor drug offenses, war vets look after war animals, and military information leaks are **REDACTED** by **REDACTED** in **REDACTED**. Crime is totally unknown. Great Patrick's national animal is the Falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Great Patrick is ranked 54,243rd in the world and 14th in Region Name for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 174,690.46 Standard Monetary Units.
