Overview People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Most Serene Republic of Deidre Skye is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Gaia with a fair hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, smutty television, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 13.62 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, Welfare, and Industry. The average income tax rate is 7.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Deidre Skyean economy, worth a remarkable 1,222 trillion coconuts a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is 89,739 coconuts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Electrocution deaths among computer technicians are at an all-time high, wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms, foreign 'investors' have been taking a great interest in the new secret shuttle, and many junior high school teachers minor in midwifery. 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 12th in Free States of Gaia and 97,889th in the world for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -1 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
