Cognitive Realm

The Principality of Cognitive Realm is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 1.931 billion Cognitive Realmians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Welfare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.3%.

The thriving Cognitive Realmian economy, worth 124 trillion florins a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery, Woodchip Exports, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 64,371 florins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 227,856 per year while the poor average 13,130, a ratio of 17.4 to 1.

The country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, citizens are enjoying a recent large cut in taxes, and pet loving officers arrest citizens who don't give their dogs enough biscuits. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Cognitive Realm's national animal is the penguin, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to heavy metals seepage into national waterways.

Cognitive Realm is ranked 10,271st in the world and 34th in Lands End for Fattest Citizens, with 17.04 Obesity Rate.
