The Republic of Audrey 17 is a very large, orderly nation, notable for its state-planned economy, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 131 million Audrey 17ians 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 41.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but stagnant Audrey 17ian economy, worth 1.30 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, fairly diversified black market in Beef-Based Agriculture, Basket Weaving, Pizza Delivery, and Soda Sales. 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 9,887 Join Lilies, 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. Audrey 17's national animal is the Join Lily.
Audrey 17 is ranked 303,607th in the world and 7,000th in Artificial Solar System for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring -9.76 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
