Imprisoned Freeman

The Holy Empire of Imprisoned Freeman is a huge, safe nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 338 million Imprisoned Freemen have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Buggerland. The average income tax rate is 46.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Imprisoned Freemanian economy, worth 30.5 trillion Thingamajigs a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 90,383 Thingamajigs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Leader's told that love often manifests itself through homicidal four-lettered litanies, female newsreaders distract the nation by breastfeeding during broadcast, saying "don't do anything that Leader wouldn't do" doesn't exclude a great deal, and space shuttles are lying silent on the runway till the Space Agency can work out how to fit a creche and a meditation room into their next spacecraft. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Imprisoned Freeman's national animal is the Levitating Ostrich, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Imprisoned Freeman is ranked 17,993rd in the world and 564th in The East Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 5,331.39 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
