Aldonquia

The Empire of Aldonquia is a tiny, safe nation, renowned for its daily referendums, compulsory military service, and suspicion of poets. The devout population of 18 million Aldonquians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 22.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The fair Aldonquian economy, worth 657 billion Topeks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 36,501 Topeks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Referenda can be called for any law at the request of at least one third of the voting population, the new national mascot has to be wheeled onto the field of play, thousands of former welfare recipients are in a revolutionary uproar as the rest of society is enjoying a hefty tax break, and sleazy politicians exploit the Parliamentary Code of Conduct to purge their rivals. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Aldonquia's national animal is the Unicorn.

Aldonquia is ranked 225,897th in the world and 8,626th in The North Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 2 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
