The Rocky

The Republic of The Rocky is a huge, safe nation, notable for its compulsory military service and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 382 million Rockyians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 18.8%.

The strong Rockyian economy, worth 24.8 trillion Rockieses a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 64,939 Rockieses, with the richest citizens earning 6.6 times as much as the poorest.

Cities in The Rocky declare independence based on interpretation of the historic meaning of cave paintings, arbitrary election rules are considered sacrosanct, meat prices are soaring as the farming industry struggle under government-imposed restrictions, and Scoutmasters debate whether luxury log cabins defeat the purpose of camping. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Rocky's national animal is the Dog.

The Rocky is ranked 160,356th in the world and 1,737th in 10000 Islands for Most Extreme, scoring 10.78 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
