Glorious Existence

Population16.729 billion


The United Socialist States of Glorious Existence is a gargantuan, genial nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and devotion to social welfare. The devout population of 16.729 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 90.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Glorious Existencean economy, worth a remarkable 1,333 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 79,692 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 174,553rd in the world and 4,649th in the West Pacific for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring -6 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
