Population920 million



The Democratic Republic of Paraness is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, daily referendums, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 920 million Paranessians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Euphoria. The average income tax rate is 71.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Paranessian economy, worth 85.6 trillion euros a year, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 93,002 euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Small businesses are gobbled up almost daily by corporate giants, it turns out that you actually can put a price on intangible cultural heritage, foreign investment has dropped to a trickle after laws were passed preventing investors from taking their earnings abroad, and school plays were recently banned due to concerns of child endangerment. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Paraness's national animal is the dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Paraness is ranked 14,254th in the world and 753rd in The North Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 90.69 Years.
