Greta And Malala

The Queendom of Greta And Malala is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, otherworldly petting zoo, and suspicion of poets. The democratic, devout population of 509 million Earthlings are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 48.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Earthling economy, worth 17.6 trillion Kronor 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, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Uranium Mining, Arms Manufacturing, and Pizza Delivery. 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 34,572 Kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Boys are forced to pair off for the school disco slow dance as the girls are all staying at home, signs of extraterrestrial life are just foreign astronauts evading Earthling justice, carbon-footprint restrictions are making businesses walk, and the jackhammer is considered a tool of artistic criticism. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Greta And Malala's national animal is the Indus River Dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Greta And Malala is ranked 184,643rd in the world and 299th in Forest for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -8.68 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
