Samoli

The Republic of Samoli is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, pith helmet sales, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 415 million Samolians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 67.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Samolian economy, worth 27.3 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 black market in Retail, Information Technology, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Trout Farming. 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 65,852 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's diplomats shake hands with those whose hands are drenched in the blood of innocents, concerned environmentalists wipe away their tears with tissues sourced from Tasmanian old-growth redwoods, large-girthed charity workers assign themselves healthy wages for their work with starving children, and the nation locks people up and tells them they're mad for compassion's sake. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Samoli's national animal is the dolphin, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Samoli is ranked 57,743rd in the world and 878th in 10000 Islands for Lowest Crime Rates, with 67.97 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
