FYR Palpatine

Population1.281 billion


The Free Democratic Land of FYR Palpatine is a massive, socially progressive nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, state-planned economy, and irreverence towards religion. The democratic population of 1.281 billion FYR Palpatineans are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Defense, and Public Transport. The average income tax rate is 45.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped FYR Palpatinean economy, worth 42.0 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Uranium Mining, Furniture Restoration, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 32,773 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has been criticized for giving away FYR Palpatine's territory to anyone who claims it, the 'Museum Of Stuff We Stole' is a tourist favourite, surveillance cameras are banned, and the country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. FYR Palpatine's national animal is the duck, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

FYR Palpatine is ranked 141,212th in the world and 19th in Norden for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -4.69 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
