Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Katabatic Post-Glacial State of Ejyafjallajokull is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by the National Government with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 8.354 billion Ejyafjallajokullians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The enormous, pro-business government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Welfare, and Environment also on the agenda, while Defense receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of KirkjubŠjarklaustur. The average income tax rate is 98.5%.

The very strong Ejyafjallajokullian economy, worth a remarkable 1,236 trillion New Ejyafjallajokullian Krˇnas a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 148,070 New Ejyafjallajokullian Krˇnas, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 739,245 per year while the poor average 16,697, a ratio of 44.3 to 1.

Retirement homes are often fitted with luxurious suites, crocodile roadkill is smeared across the asphalt of the new Formula One track, coalition governments are essential to passing new laws, and sullen teenagers in bright orange 'community payback' onesies can be seen picking litter at the roadside. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ejyafjallajokull's national animal is the Great Ejyafjallajokullian Auk, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is virtually obsolete Catholicism.

Ejyafjallajokull is ranked 140,147th in the world and 46th in Scandinavia for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -9.38 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
