Citrus Rutaceae

Population564 million



The Republic of Citrus Rutaceae is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, state-planned economy, and vat-grown people. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 564 million Citrus Rutaceaeans are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Orange. The average income tax rate is 70.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Citrus Rutaceaean economy, worth 45.6 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 a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Basket Weaving, Tourism, Retail, and Automobile Manufacturing. 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 80,892 Citruses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Mining safety laws are often more expensive than what's being mined, politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, the government funds private schools for intellectually gifted children, and hit and run driving is no longer a crime - it's the national sport. 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 is also the nation's favorite main course.

Citrus Rutaceae is ranked 74,820th in the world and 4,314th in The North Pacific for Safest, scoring 88.31 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
