Glorious Existence

Population17.647 billion


The United Socialist States of Glorious Existence is a gargantuan, genial nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The devout population of 17.647 billion Glorious Existenceans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 91.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Glorious Existencean economy, worth a remarkable 1,443 trillion Drudges a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 81,797 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 well-funded 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 106,152nd in the world and 783rd in the West Pacific for Largest Black Market, with 414 billion Standard Monetary Units.
