Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Queen's State of Saola is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by the Governor with an iron fist, and renowned for its enforced nudity, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical, humorless population of 11.685 billion Saolans are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Capital Heights. The average income tax rate is 65.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Saolan economy, worth 74.4 trillion betales a year, is highly specialized and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Basket Weaving, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 6,364 betales, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Governor has just been declared ruler of Saola in an international press conference, kids laugh off vandalism and arson as "just fun", the state is footing the bill for billionaires' lawyers, and torture is illegal. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Saola's national animal is the deer, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its national religion is none.

Saola is ranked 149,979th in the world and 1,128th in Ancient Lands for Highest Poor Incomes, with 6,364.92 Standard Monetary Units.
