Rich People Hate

Population3.042 billion


The Commonwealth of Rich People Hate is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its state-planned economy and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 3.042 billion Rich People Hateans are ruled with an iron fist by the socialist government, which grants its people the freedom to do whatever they like so long as it doesn't involve getting richer than anybody else or challenging the government.

The large, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 43.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Rich People Hatean economy, worth 18.6 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Trout Farming, Woodchip Exports, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 6,107 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rich People Hate's national animal is the bison, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Rich People Hate is ranked 155,229th in the world and 52nd in Empire of Love for Smartest Citizens, with 26.07 quips per hour.
