Overview Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Democratic Republic of Chris Hallett is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Virtuous Mentor with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 7.272 billion Friends 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, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hallettopolis. The average income tax rate is 90.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Friendian economy, worth 912 trillion Dollarydoos a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 125,543 Dollarydoos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians "baring all" for the camera isn't always a figure of speech, murderers with law degrees can be seen swinging the gavel in courts, surveillance cameras are banned, and prankster scientists legally change their names to silly pseudonyms before major discoveries. Crime is totally unknown. Chris Hallett's national animal is the Velociraptor, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Chris Hallett is ranked 1,095th in the world and 60th in The North Pacific for Safest, scoring 150.07 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
