Pessimist Isle

Population1.519 billion



The Republic of Pessimist Isle is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Daniel25 with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, unlimited-speed roads, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 1.519 billion Pessimists hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Puolanka. The average income tax rate is 34.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Pessimist Islean economy, worth 202 trillion Ciorans a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 133,067 Ciorans, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

Astronauts take one small step for Pessimist Isle and one giant step backward from confrontation, conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings, the government has legalised small-scale capitalism, and self-driving cars obey the road rules even during emergencies. Crime is totally unknown. Pessimist Isle's national animal is the Blobfish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Pessimist Isle is ranked 24,955th in the world and 12th in Enadia for Most Politically Free, scoring 81.43 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
