Recon Island

Population633 million



The Federation of Recon Island is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, compulsory military service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 633 million Recon Islandians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wheatland. The average income tax rate is 32.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Recon Islandian economy, worth 85.3 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 134,777 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's most "productive" diamond mine hasn't been operational for seven months, where there's a will there is usually a password manager, one-stop superstores divide and conquer family businesses, and bins outnumber trees in city parks. Crime is totally unknown. Recon Island's national animal is the Coyote, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Recon Island is ranked 23,328th in the world and 242nd in 10000 Islands for Largest Basket Weaving Sector, scoring 5,158.72 on the Hickory Productivity Index.
