Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Most Serene Republic of Deidre Skye is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Gaia with a fair hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, daily referendums, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 13.34 billion Deidre Skyeans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 8.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Deidre Skyean economy, worth a remarkable 1,158 trillion coconuts a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Gambling. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 86,847 coconuts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Chalkboards are replaced with billboards in the classroom, discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is illegal, anti-government web sites are springing up, and manual labourers must be willing to have cybernetic limbs to get a job. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Deidre Skye's national animal is the monkey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Deidre Skye is ranked 14th in Free States of Gaia and 135,954th in the world for Shortest Average Lifespan, scoring -29 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
