Glorious Existence

Population16.272 billion


The United Socialist States of Glorious Existence is a gargantuan, cultured nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The devout population of 16.272 billion Glorious Existenceans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 89.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Glorious Existencean economy, worth a remarkable 1,285 trillion Drudges a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 79,000 Drudges, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It's harder to qualify for IVF than for a good university, interest rates mysteriously drop whenever the CBGE Governor goes house hunting, NPCs in MMORPGs regularly interrupt cutscenes with OOC reminders that they aren't real people, and the Glorious Existence City Film Festival recently voted 'Glorious Existencean Getting Hit By Football' as best film. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Glorious Existence's national animal is the Leech, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Glorious Existence is ranked 143,773rd in the world and 3,946th in the West Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 31.5 on the Rand Index.
