Hylandian Republic

Population532 million


The Republic of Hylandian Republic is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its ban on automobiles, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate, democratic population of 532 million Hylandian Republicians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Welfare, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 66.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Hylandian Republician economy, worth 13.7 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 25,718 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Officials pull all-nighters to check immigrants for potential links to terrorists, the nation's only university is the School of Hard Knocks, it is against the rules of boxing to hit above or below the belt, and doctors prescribe videos of political debates to patients with insomnia. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hylandian Republic's national animal is the bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Hylandian Republic is ranked 63,883rd in the world and 612th in Europe for Lowest Crime Rates, with 67.48 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
