Greater Ale Permars

Population545 million



The Empire of Greater Ale Permars is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, compulsory military service, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 545 million Greater Ale Permarsians are free to succeed or fail in life on their own merits; the successful tend to enjoy an opulent (but moralistic) lifestyle, while the failures can be seen crowding out most jails.

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lyns. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 39.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Greater Ale Permarsian economy, worth 56.6 trillion Permarks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Uranium Mining. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 103,761 Permarks, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 582,352 per year while the poor average 9,154, a ratio of 63.6 to 1.

Propaganda and Partisanship 101 is a required class all political candidates must pass before being nominated by their chosen party, Dogman-branded weapons are all the rage in the militaristic comic-book community, glamping Greater Ale Permarsians won't sleep in a tent that doesn't include a Jacuzzi, and street preachers spend more time condemning government bureaucracy than passers-by. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Greater Ale Permars's national animal is the Jaguar, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Greater Ale Permars is ranked 187,970th in the world and 8,866th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 79.1 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
