Almadaria

Population10 million

The Democratic Republic of Almadaria is a tiny, safe nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, irreverence towards religion, and restrictive gun laws. The cynical population of 10 million Almadarians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, moralistic, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Defense, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 74.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Almadarian economy, worth 368 billion dólars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Furniture Restoration, and Information Technology. Average income is 36,899 dólars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

Film studios own the rights to actors' likenesses until the next millennium, census workers struggle to account for the rapidly increasing number of citizens to tabulate, Almadarian watches list strained wrists as a common side effect, and ethnic minorities are often refused admission to some of the nation's best schools. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Almadaria's national animal is the queztal, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Almadaria is ranked 144,602nd in the world and 6,368th in the West Pacific for Highest Crime Rates, with 2.28 Crimes Per Hour.
