The Syndicalist Society

Population782 million


The Free Land of The Syndicalist Society is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, absence of drug laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 782 million Syndicalists are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 67.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Syndicalist Societyian economy, worth 16.1 trillion Dollars 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, quite specialized black market in Book Publishing, Tourism, Automobile Manufacturing, and Information Technology. 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 20,599 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Weapons produced by newly nationalized armaments factories have been found to contain sawdust instead of gunpowder, The Syndicalist Society recently decided against having a capital city, military barracks resemble five-star hotels, and criminals rejoice in the streets as the entire police force is sent away on a training retreat. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Syndicalist Society's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Syndicalist Society is ranked 18,780th in the world and 601st in The North Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 37.4 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
