San Medici

Population165 million


The People's Republic of San Medici is a very large, safe nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, digital currency, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The compassionate, democratic population of 165 million San Medicians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 24.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong San Medician economy, worth 13.0 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 78,721 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Pretending to be prejudiced is a good way to get out of jury duty, more than one company makes the board game Monopoly, the weather is the nation's most risqué topic of conversation, and court cases mostly involve lawyers shouting questions at witnesses giving silent shrugs. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. San Medici's national animal is the birds-of-paradise , which is also the nation's favorite main course.

San Medici is ranked 27,094th in the world and 734th in the Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 56,201.73 Standard Monetary Units.
