Citrus Rutaceae

Population1.475 billion



The Republic of Citrus Rutaceae is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Sinensis with an iron fist, and remarkable for its fear of technology, ban on automobiles, and rampant corporate plagiarism. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 1.475 billion Citrus Rutaceaeans are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The enormous, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Reticulata. The average income tax rate is 82.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Citrus Rutaceaean economy, worth 177 trillion Citruses a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Retail, Basket Weaving, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 120,055 Citruses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The government's suicide hotline now redirects callers to local tax lawyers, left-wing militias train children how to properly burn down banks, funerals are often rudely interrupted by juggling clowns shouting for volunteers from the audience, and children dream of becoming physicians and physicists. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Citrus Rutaceae's national animal is the Raccoon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Paradisi.

Citrus Rutaceae is ranked 13,378th in the world and 642nd in The North Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring 9,083.27 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
