Kollasia

The United Kingdom of Kollasia is a very large, safe nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 148 million Kollasians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 19.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Kollasian economy, worth 7.05 trillion bitcoins a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Book Publishing, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 47,631 bitcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's once beautiful countryside has turned brown as farmers spray potent pesticides, army rations are served on silver platters, a cyber-war between file sharers and the music industry formats hard drives across the country, and grade school teachers mark homework with red "CITATION NEEDED" stamps. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Kollasia's national animal is the Falcon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Kollasia is ranked 65,760th in the world and 1st in The North Republic of Brotherhood for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 8,369.52 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
