La Costa Dorada

Population1.875 billion

CapitalLa Ciudad Dorada
LeaderSantiago García


The Golden Republic of La Costa Dorada is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Santiago García with an even hand, and remarkable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, smutty television, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.875 billion La Costa Doradans enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of La Ciudad Dorada. The average income tax rate is 83.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Doradanian economy, worth 202 trillion Pesos a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 107,799 Pesos, 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, newspapers and TV broadcasters are given a list of 'acceptable words', high school bands practice by moonlight, and snap elections are called whenever there's a chance to increase Santiago García's majority. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. La Costa Dorada's national animal is the Kangaroo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.

La Costa Dorada is ranked 120,210th in the world and 3,991st in The East Pacific for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -8 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
