Hoping For The Best

Population5.926 billion

The Most Serene Republic of Hoping For The Best is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by Hoping with an even hand, and notable for its prohibition of alcohol, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 5.926 billion Hoppers are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Welfare, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Iceburg. The average income tax rate is 67.3%.

The thriving Hoping For The Bestian economy, worth 466 trillion pieces a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 78,729 pieces, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.1 times as much as the poorest.

The government supplies ragtag bands of resistance fighters in exchange for vague promises of future payment, untold millions of pieces are going into a new government-funded maternity leave scheme, referenda can be called for any law at the request of at least one third of the voting population, and "Mad Max: Returning Again to Barrydrome" is this year's unexpected summer blockbuster. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hoping For The Best's national animal is the hop ray, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Hoping For The Best is ranked 36,253rd in the world and 83rd in Thaecia for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 67.26 Effective Tax Rate.
