Festus Krex

Population1.197 billion


The Republic of Festus Krex is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed population of 1.197 billion Festus Krexians 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 Law & Order, Education, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 24.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Festus Krexian economy, worth 46.5 trillion pesos a year, is led by the Cheese Exports industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Arms Manufacturing, and Gambling. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 38,829 pesos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

It is illegal to make racist remarks in public, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit, and citizens try to pass off bottlecaps they found in their backyards as historical artifacts. Crime is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Festus Krex's national animal is the turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Festus Krex is ranked 148,452nd in the world and 1st in Assassins for Lowest Crime Rates, with 58.6 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
