The Republic of Colon open bracket is a small, socially progressive nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, absence of drug laws, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-working, democratic population of 36 million Colon open bracketians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.
The tiny, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government prioritizes Defense, although Welfare, Healthcare, and Public Transport are also considered important, while International Aid and Spirituality are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.3%.
The strong Colon open bracketian economy, worth 1.42 trillion colons a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is led by the Soda Sales industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Uranium Mining, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 39,479 colons, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 303,583 per year while the poor average 1,374, a ratio of 220 to 1.
Crime is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Colon open bracket's national animal is the open bracket, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.
