LeaderKing Schlomo II


The Free Land of Ciapore is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by King Schlomo II with a fair hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 4.509 billion Ciaporeans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, outspoken morass — prioritizes Healthcare, with Education, Welfare, and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Taengata. The average income tax rate is 73.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Ciaporean economy, worth 178 trillion Rovas 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 Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 39,666 Rovas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

King Schlomo II wears a chewed-up rubber chicken suit to meet foreign delegates, high-income earners pay a 100% tax rate, signatures have been replaced with illegible scribbles, and prankster scientists legally change their names to silly pseudonyms before major discoveries. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ciapore's national animal is the Druk, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Shaafi.

Ciapore is ranked 122,917th in the world and 329th in Conch Kingdom for Most Patriotic, with 12.14 flags saluted per person per day.
