The Republic of Audrey 18 is a very large, safe nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 137 million Audrey 18ians 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 18ian economy, worth 1.35 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 Trout Farming, Arms Manufacturing, Cheese Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance 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 9,882 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 18's national animal is the Join Lily, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
Audrey 18 is ranked 185,011th in the world and 3,811th in Artificial Solar System for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 597.22 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
