Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Bourgeois Liberals of Collatis is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by George Costanza with a fair hand, and remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, anti-smoking policies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 6.959 billion Collasians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Collatia. The average income tax rate is 86.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Collasian economy, worth a remarkable 1,156 trillion counoes a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 166,119 counoes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, the government seizes all major gold finds, arbitrary election rules are considered sacrosanct, and the new Refuse Hills housing development is under construction. Crime is totally unknown. Collatis's national animal is the wolf in mouse clothing, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Collatis is ranked 6,516th in the world and 1st in Astraeus for Most Advanced Public Transport, scoring 5,047.53 on the Societal Mobility Rating.
