Citrus Rutaceae

Population793 million



The Republic of Citrus Rutaceae is a huge, efficient nation, ruled by Sinensis with an iron fist, and renowned for its zero percent divorce rate, fear of technology, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 793 million Citrus Rutaceaeans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Orange. The average income tax rate is 71.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Citrus Rutaceaean economy, worth 78.1 trillion Citruses a year, is quite specialized and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Soda Sales, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 98,467 Citruses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's WA representatives have received a very public sacking after Citrus Rutaceae allowed its WA membership to lapse, East Lebatuckese luxury goods are plundered by the working class of Citrus Rutaceae, the government loves seeing the little people fight, and bicycle parking sheds have sprouted like mushrooms near rail stations after cars were banned. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Citrus Rutaceae's national animal is the Raccoon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Citrus Rutaceae is ranked 129,508th in the world and 5,512th in The North Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring zero on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
