Greatest Chernobyl

The Republic of Greatest Chernobyl is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, fear of technology, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 4.023 billion Greatest Chernobylians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The relatively small, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 18.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Greatest Chernobylian economy, worth 305 trillion francs a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 76,009 francs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

The nation has nearly as many history museums as Greatest Chernobylians, nuclear warheads are frequently launched into space as a warning to invading meteoroids, the military is slashing spending on conventional arms and diverting it to spending on prosthetic arms, and the might of the entire Greatest Chernobylian Navy is focused on fifty bemused spear-throwing islanders. Crime is a problem. Greatest Chernobyl's national animal is the swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Greatest Chernobyl is ranked 155,492nd in the world and 5,438th in Balder for Largest Mining Sector, scoring -8.37 on the Blue Sky Asbestos Index.
