Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The United Socialist States of Continentum is a tiny, safe nation, renowned for its frequent executions, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The hard-working population of 12 million Continentumians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government is primarily concerned with Law & Order, with Defense, Welfare, and Education also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. The average income tax rate is 28.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Continentumian economy, worth 591 billion Contins a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 49,299 Contins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The nationalistic national anthem inspires citizens to literally spit at foreigners, the government strictly regulates whale harvest quotas, every week is blindness awareness week, and the nation's image rights are the strictest in the world. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Continentum's national animal is the Bear.

Continentum is ranked 154,662nd in the world and 263rd in Renegade Islands Alliance for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -8.37 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
