The Spook Who Sat By The Door

Population558 million

The Rogue Nation of The Spook Who Sat By The Door is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its frequent executions, national health service, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 558 million Freemen are proud of their wide-ranging civil freedoms, and those who aren't tend to be dragged off the streets by men in dark suits and hustled into cars with tinted windows.

The relatively small, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Arizona Bay. The average income tax rate is 9.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Freeman economy, worth 21.7 trillion xags a year, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Gambling, Soda Sales, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 38,819 xags, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Marketing departments of corporate giants compete to sponsor little league teams, school uniforms are compulsory, the internet has been placed under government control, and the price of freedom is about half a million xags. Crime is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force. The Spook Who Sat By The Door's national animal is the panther, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Spook Who Sat By The Door is ranked 124,420th in the world and 254th in Conch Kingdom for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 1,435.79 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
