The Enlightened Tugas

Population262 million



The Community of The Enlightened Tugas is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its smutty television, state-planned economy, and frequent executions. The quiet, industrious population of 262 million Tugas are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lisbon. The average income tax rate is 55.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Tuga economy, worth 22.2 trillion Tugareums 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 large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Book Publishing, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. 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 84,578 Tugareums, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The experimental sculpture "Overtures In Dried Cat Dung" has been declared a national treasure, it is illegal to have the wrong clock time showing on your microwave oven, drills and shovels have been banned as the government cracks down on any means of fracking, and an increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Enlightened Tugas's national animal is the Cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Enlightened Tugas is ranked 175,061st in the world and 4,190th in The North Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 22.2 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
