Native Tears

Population10.796 billion


The Salt Mines of Native Tears is a gargantuan, orderly nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 10.796 billion Wardens are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 45.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Native Tearsian economy, worth 212 trillion Tears a year, is quite specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Gambling, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 19,661 Tears, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Political activists are routinely executed. Crime is well under control, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Native Tears's national animal is the Griffon.

Native Tears is ranked 86,285th in the world and 2nd in Landia for Most Primitive, scoring -14.14 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
