Artemis Selene

Population569 million

AnimalDianaean Deer

The Queendom of Artemis Selene is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its daily referendums, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 569 million Artemis Seleneans love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Moonlight City. The average income tax rate is 71.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Artemis Selenean economy, worth 57.7 trillion Moonstones a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 101,406 Moonstones, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Cosmopolitan citizens ask what their countries can do for them, the inside lane of every highway is for parked vehicles only, chickens frolic freely on swings and roundabouts in Moonlight City's playgrounds, and prolonged government investigations are a common revenge tactic among spurned significant others. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Artemis Selene's national animal is the Dianaean Deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Artemis Selene is ranked 26,377th in the world and 1,262nd in The North Pacific for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 71.21 Effective Tax Rate.
