East Sikayl

The Protectorate of East Sikayl is a huge, safe nation, notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, ubiquitous missile silos, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 439 million East Sikaylians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 39.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong East Sikaylian economy, worth 27.4 trillion bitcoins a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Uranium Mining, and Pizza Delivery. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 62,394 bitcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

A popular saying is "a chicken for every pot and an abortion clinic on every street", criminals are thrown to the Anthropomorphic Tea Kettles to repay their debt to society, assault rifles sized for 7-year-olds are a frighteningly popular export, and many are questioning Leader wearing an Eckie-Ecola baseball cap during a keynote speech. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. East Sikayl's national animal is the Anthropomorphic Tea Kettle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

East Sikayl is ranked 72,014th in the world and 2,723rd in The East Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 64.4 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
