Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Vast lands of Colony of lasting Hopes is a massive, genial nation, ruled by Grand Paladin with a fair hand, and remarkable for its pith helmet sales, ubiquitous missile silos, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 2.277 billion Hopeians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fallen Knights. The average income tax rate is 90.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Colony Hopeian economy, worth 241 trillion Element Dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 105,982 Element Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has pledged that not one drop of its citizens' blood will be spilt, reporters who negatively comment on politicians' haircuts are cut from the news, collisions between bicycles and carnival floats are on the rise, and Christianity now admits men and women into its clergy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Colony of lasting Hopes's national animal is the Sabre Toothed Panther, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Colony of lasting Hopes is ranked 160,451st in the world and 8,638th in The North Pacific for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -14.18 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
