Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Imperial Provinces of Sicoutimont is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Empreror Jean III with an even hand, and renowned for its public floggings, sprawling nuclear power plants, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 5.457 billion Sicoutians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lac Drouin. The average income tax rate is 70.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sicoutian economy, worth 745 trillion Sicoes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 136,577 Sicoes, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

All guns must be registered, cremation is compulsory for the deceased, students are wary of colorfully decorated new teachers with names like Professor Pipsqueak, and Beluga Whale racing stadiums are open 24/7. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Sicoutimont's national animal is the Beluga Whale, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways, and its national religion is Sicoutian Church.

Sicoutimont is ranked 32,433rd in the world and 843rd in Balder for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 3,926.75 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
