North Pernambuco

Population921 million



The Socialist Republic of North Pernambuco is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 921 million North Pernambucoans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Industry, although Healthcare, Education, and Administration are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Recife. The average income tax rate is 64.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming North Pernambucoan economy, worth 74.7 trillion Bucos 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 Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Basket Weaving, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 81,111 Bucos, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Dozens of viewers go online to hear whether a comma has been added to Clause 5 in Subsection B of Law 58375, the 'sing-a-long with Leader' album is a popular souvenir, the entire entry for North Pernambuco in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the World reads 'mostly harmless', and Leader has just been declared ruler of North Pernambuco in an international press conference. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. North Pernambuco's national animal is the asa-branca, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

North Pernambuco is ranked 40,354th in the world and 1,185th in the South Pacific for Healthiest Citizens, with 6.66 bananas ingested per day.
