Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Vast lands of Colony of lasting Hopes is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Grand Paladin with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and daily referendums. The compassionate, devout population of 1.569 billion Hopeians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Defense. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Fallen Knights. The average income tax rate is 90.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Colony Hopeian economy, worth 174 trillion Element Dollars a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 111,362 Element Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Factories are regularly demolished to make way for low-cost housing areas, big game hunters travel to Colony of lasting Hopes to try their hand at shark-shooting, the government strictly regulates whale harvest quotas, and park rangers perform full-body searches on suspected fungus smugglers. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive 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 140,028th in the world and 7,516th in The North Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -180.2 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
