Chaotic Sparkles

Population4.872 billion

LeaderPythie Frederica


The Notorious Chaotic Witch of Chaotic Sparkles is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Pythie Frederica with a fair hand, and notable for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.872 billion Sparkles are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hecq. The average income tax rate is 82.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Sparkling economy, worth 570 trillion Spareks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an impressive 117,185 Spareks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Printing out government documents requires the approval of at least three admins, kilts and cassocks are viewed with suspicion, virtual assistants are seen with increasing suspicion every time they get an upgrade, and the government mails weekly updates on the new anti-junk mail laws to every citizen. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Chaotic Sparkles's national animal is the Mermaid, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Chaotic Sparkles is ranked 17,661st in the world and 18th in Sparkalia for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 300.52 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
