Primus Spiritus

Population50 million


The Allied States of Primus Spiritus is a large, efficient nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, complete absence of social welfare, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 50 million Primus Spiritusians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is dominated by the Department of Spirituality, with Defense also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.9%.

The very strong Primus Spiritusian economy, worth 3.09 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 61,894 betales, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 338,711 per year while the poor average 5,773, a ratio of 58.7 to 1.

Genetic researchers have been expelled, all tariffs have been abolished, euthanasia is legal, and the automotive industry soaks up huge government handouts. Crime is a problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Primus Spiritus's national animal is the deer, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Primus Spiritus is ranked 173,171st in the world and 6th in Old Spirit for Most Developed, scoring 52.37 on the Human Development Index.
