Coast of Figura

The Free Land of Coast of Figura is a very large, genial nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical population of 194 million figures are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The medium-sized, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 38.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Coast of Figuran economy, worth 7.61 trillion manas 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, fairly diversified black market in Information Technology, Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, 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 39,232 manas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Discarded pennies litter the streets, the mana is said to only have value in antique shops, social media sites prompt users to send birthday greetings to unresponsive nonagenarians, and the government considers the rising number of McRonald's fast food restaurants to be great progress. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Coast of Figura's national animal is the whale shark, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Coast of Figura is ranked 80,539th in the world and 96th in Eurth for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 2,005.4 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
