EquGothic Nation

Population24.655 billion


The United Individuals of EquGothic Nation is a gargantuan, safe nation, remarkable for its lack of airports, national health service, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, cheerful population of 24.655 billion EquGothic Nationians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Social Policy. The income tax rate is 100%.

The large but stagnant EquGothic Nationian economy, worth 428 trillion equgoths a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 17,361 equgoths, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Survivors receive aid from only the most environmentally-friendly transport, all major public areas are watched by police surveillance cameras, a government program is underway to revitalize EquGothic Nation's beaches, and nursing mothers are often arrested for indecent exposure. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. EquGothic Nation's national animal is the cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

EquGothic Nation is ranked 205,585th in the world and 5,148th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -43.66 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
