Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Holy Empire of Plaquera is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Comrade with an even hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, ubiquitous missile silos, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, cheerful, devout population of 23.807 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 3,141 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 131,971 human lives, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Graffiti graces every city's streets, the Plaqueran Arts Council pays teenagers to sit through opera performances, UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, and the nation's official head of religious affairs is an atheist. 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 191,442nd in the world and 45th in Gatesville Inc for Most Primitive, scoring -516.84 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
