Pokoreniye

Population2.557 billion

The Republic of Pokoreniye is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its infamous sell-swords, irreverence towards religion, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.557 billion Pokoreniyeans 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 75.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Pokoreniyean economy, worth 197 trillion Pokoreniye Rubles a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 77,273 Pokoreniye Rubles, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Protests are legal but strictly supervised, battlefield gains are quickly lost when enemies don't respect a time-out, couples kissing on the street are detained for 'unlawful exchange of genetic material', and hundreds of subterranean tunnels are being built as part of "Project Morlock". Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pokoreniye's national animal is the Black Mamba, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Pokoreniye is ranked 22,300th in the world and 714th in The East Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 6,722.64 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
