The United Islands of Knossos

Population620 million

The Confederacy of The United Islands of Knossos is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, compulsory military service, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 620 million United Islands of Knossosians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stratos. The average income tax rate is 21.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The United Islands of Knossosian economy, worth 38.7 trillion Pallas a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 62,344 Pallas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens are bombarded with advertising from their compulsory miniature radios, hordes of tourists are ruining the environment, there's no cure or sympathy for the common cold, and all government facilities are built in the subterranean citadel of Stratos. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The United Islands of Knossos's national animal is the Maltese Hound, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The United Islands of Knossos is ranked 76,171st in the world and 224th in Europeia for Fattest Citizens, with 10.95 Obesity Rate.
