Hoping For The Best

Population5.939 billion

The Most Serene Republic of Hoping For The Best is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Hoping with an even hand, and renowned for its prohibition of alcohol, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 5.939 billion Hoppers are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Welfare, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Iceburg. The average income tax rate is 68.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Hoping For The Bestian economy, worth 455 trillion pieces a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 76,726 pieces, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government supplies ragtag bands of resistance fighters in exchange for vague promises of future payment, untold millions of pieces are going into a new government-funded maternity leave scheme, referenda can be called for any law at the request of at least one third of the voting population, and "Mad Max: Returning Again to Barrydrome" is this year's unexpected summer blockbuster. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hoping For The Best's national animal is the hop ray, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Hoping For The Best is ranked 10,628th in the world and 36th in Thaecia for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 4,600.7 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
