Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Holy Empire of Plaquera is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Comrade with an even hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and ubiquitous missile silos. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 24.543 billion Plaquerans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Defense. The income tax rate is 100%.

The enormous but sluggish Plaqueran economy, worth a remarkable 2,901 trillion human lives a year, is extremely specialized and solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 118,207 human lives, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Every new building project has to undergo a five-year environmental impact study before it can go ahead, sections of the police receive paramilitary training, prices for nearly everything reach all time highs as business tax breaks are discontinued, and foreign investment has dropped to a trickle after laws were passed preventing investors from taking their earnings abroad. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Plaquera's national animal is the cobra, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Plaquera is ranked 505th in the world and 2nd in Gatesville Inc for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 14,913.56 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
