The Island of Kiritibati is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Ariki Kauri with a fair hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.095 billion Kiritians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
The large, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tarawa. The average income tax rate is 57.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The Kiritian economy, worth 64.3 trillion AUDS a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Tourism. Average income is 58,719 AUDS, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Bleach is the nation's most common pesticide, banning party poppers has been a real party pooper, the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, and voting for pro-Bigtopian candidates is voluntary. Crime is totally unknown. Kiritibati's national animal is the orca, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.
