Tappan Hills

Population3.221 billion



The People's Republic of Tappan Hills is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 3.221 billion Tappan Hillsians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Cadiz. The average income tax rate is 56.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Tappan Hillsian economy, worth 442 trillion Dollarydoos a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 137,491 Dollarydoos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

Police struggle to solve crimes due to the lack of fingerprint records, fiscal policy hawks decry the sizable "panem et circenses" fund added to the public budget, mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest-growing field, and it is not politically correct to suspect that a serially convicted burglar might steal again. Crime is totally unknown. Tappan Hills's national animal is the Possum, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Tappan Hills is ranked 165,960th in the world and 6,572nd in Osiris for Most Average, scoring 26.53 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
