Blatant Lies

Population1.006 billion


The Republic of Blatant Lies is a massive, safe nation, remarkable for its burgeoning swan population. The devout population of 1.006 billion Blatant Liesians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Law & Order, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 30.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Blatant Liesian economy, worth 37.8 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 37,608 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Blatant Lies's national animal is the swan.

Blatant Lies is ranked 80,598th in the world and 2nd in Femisphere for Highest Poor Incomes, with 23,762.64 Standard Monetary Units.
