Add Ripple Effect

Population1.228 billion


The Nomadic Peoples of Add Ripple Effect is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 1.228 billion Add Ripple Effectians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 42.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Add Ripple Effectian economy, worth 11.9 trillion Dogecoins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Trout Farming, Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 9,670 Dogecoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Add Ripple Effect's national animal is the Human, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Add Ripple Effect is ranked 118,837th in the world and 3rd in Hole To Hide In for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 50 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
