Table Eaters

Population1.684 billion

LeaderBench Muncher


The Most Serene Republic of Table Eaters is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Bench Muncher with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-working, democratic population of 1.684 billion table eatersians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, corrupt, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Industry, Administration, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of TableTown. The average income tax rate is 66.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Table Eatersian economy, worth 255 trillion monies 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, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Retail, 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 an impressive 151,848 monies, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

One tree's worth of paperwork accompanies each imported log of timber, trying to toast marshmallows in an electric fireplace just isn't the same, wilderness-dwelling hermits are surprised to find railway stations on their front doorsteps, and the military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers. Crime is totally unknown. Table Eaters's national animal is the kiwi, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Table Eaters is ranked 9,716th in the world and 530th in The North Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 104,086.09 Standard Monetary Units.
