Overly Responsible Things

Population565 million


The Community of Overly Responsible Things is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The cynical population of 565 million Overly Responsible Thingsians are ruled with an iron fist by the socialist government, which grants its people the freedom to do whatever they like so long as it doesn't involve getting richer than anybody else or challenging the government.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 64.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Overly Responsible Thingsian economy, worth 7.32 trillion stonks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 12,955 stonks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Overly Responsible Things's national animal is the unicorn.

Overly Responsible Things is ranked 198,809th in the world and 2nd in Where the Wild Things Are for Highest Economic Output, with 7.32 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
