Plarland Amex

Population1.849 billion

LeaderGompert Hergoluft


The Incorporated States of Plarland Amex is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Gompert Hergoluft with an even hand, and notable for its rum-swilling pirates, complete lack of prisons, and disturbing lack of elderly people. The compassionate population of 1.849 billion Plarland Amexians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Amexia. The average income tax rate is 84.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Plarland Amexian economy, worth 191 trillion deniers a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Retail, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 103,307 deniers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Thieves find battery shops juicier targets than banks, Gompert Hergoluft's peyote-induced "let's all just be friends" speech is trending world-wide, embarrassed police officers wear spandex and carry net guns, and the intelligence community is playing 4-D chess with an imaginary spy network. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Plarland Amex's national animal is the turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Animism.

Plarland Amex is ranked 211,254th in the world and 4,851st in the West Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.45 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
