Free Culture

Population14.84 billion


The Empire of Free Culture is a gargantuan, efficient nation, renowned for its daily referendums, compulsory military service, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, cheerful population of 14.84 billion Free Cultureans 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 tiny government is dominated by the Department of Education, although Industry, Healthcare, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 6.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Free Culturean economy, worth a remarkable 3,617 trillion denaris a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 243,747 denaris, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The government extracts trade concessions from poor nations in exchange for humanitarian aid, the nation faces constant invasions by foreign boy bands, science centers and state of the art laboratories are ubiquitous, and online weather reports are predicting five years of glorious sunshine for Free Culture. Crime is totally unknown. Free Culture's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Free Culture is ranked 1,968th in the world and 110th in The North Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 96.93 on the Human Development Index.
