Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Queen's State of Calm Easy is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, notable for its smutty television and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 19.744 billion Calm Easyians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.

The tiny, pro-business, outspoken government is dominated by the Department of Education, although Industry, Law & Order, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.0%.

The thriving Calm Easyian economy, worth 984 trillion betales a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Gambling, and Information Technology. Average income is 49,869 betales, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 187,429 per year while the poor average 9,262, a ratio of 20.2 to 1.

Government officials frequently cut taxes as a distraction from antics with their secretaries, fur coats have become the latest fashion trend, graffiti graces every city's streets, and programmes of questionable content are shown at peak-hours. Crime, especially youth-related, is a serious problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Calm Easy's national animal is the deer, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Calm Easy is ranked 160,859th in the world and 943rd in Ancient Lands for Most Income Equality, scoring 4.87 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
