Audrey 16

The Republic of Audrey 16 is a very large, orderly nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 132 million Audrey 16ians 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 Welfare. The average income tax rate is 51.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Audrey 16ian economy, worth 1.14 trillion Join Lilies 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 Beef-Based Agriculture, Pizza Delivery, Arms Manufacturing, and Woodchip 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 8,604 Join Lilies, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Audrey 16's national animal is the Join Lily.

Audrey 16 is ranked 238,492nd in the world and 5,110th in Artificial Solar System for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -4 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
