Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Holy Empire of Earth and Freedom is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Chief Officer Nathan with an even hand, and renowned for its anti-smoking policies, complete lack of prisons, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed population of 8.851 billion Earth and Freedomians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Freedomnapolis. The average income tax rate is 69.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Earth and Freedomian economy, worth 444 trillion Free dollars a year, is driven entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 50,203 Free dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens are regularly found digging for treasure in their gardens, museums stand half-empty as all foreign exhibits are returned to their countries of origin, referenda can be called for any law at the request of at least one third of the voting population, and the government blames all suspicious phenomena on flying saucers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Earth and Freedom's national animal is the Blue Jay, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Earth and Freedom is ranked 3,884th in Lazarus and 135,704th in the world for Shortest Average Lifespan, scoring -29 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
