The Holy Empire of Picklestan is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its frequent executions, complete lack of prisons, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 1.823 billion Picklestanians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The large government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 56.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The thriving Picklestanian economy, worth 141 trillion Pounds a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Basket Weaving, and Woodchip Exports. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 77,858 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Street preachers spend more time condemning government bureaucracy than passers-by, being dead no longer has any benefits, modelling agencies send their clients to work in nursing homes, and there is something rotten in the state of Picklestan. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Picklestan's national animal is the Pidgeon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
