United East Republics

The Federation of United East Republics is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its pith helmet sales, ubiquitous missile silos, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 343 million East Republicans enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The tiny, liberal government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Education and Industry also on the agenda, while International Aid and Welfare aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.1%.

The powerhouse East Republican economy, worth 35.0 trillion Chicken Wings a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Woodchip Exports, and Gambling. Average income is an impressive 102,072 Chicken Wings, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 391,702 per year while the poor average 18,338, a ratio of 21.4 to 1.

Hit TV show 'The eXecution Factor' is a critical success, unshaven men are viewed with suspicion in courts of law, a third of East Republicans are e-certified CEOs, and breast milk lattes are the newest fad among hip urbanites. Crime is a major problem, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. United East Republics's national animal is the Liberal Chicken, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

United East Republics is ranked 89,974th in the world and 819th in 10000 Islands for Most Extreme, scoring 19.69 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
