Population100 million


The Republic of Debussy is a very large, orderly nation, remarkable for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 100 million Impressionists are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, corrupt, well-organized morass — juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 73.3%.

The strong Debussyian economy, worth 5.15 trillion Manuels a year, is quite specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Soda Sales, Cheese Exports, and Arms Manufacturing. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 51,532 Manuels, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.3 times as much as the poorest.

The "feminist protest" defence is increasingly common for cases of armed robbery, the military is slashing spending on conventional arms and diverting it to spending on prosthetic arms, you're only as old as you feel, and military parades quietly tiptoe their way through the streets. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low. Debussy's national animal is the Angora, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Debussy is ranked 140,655th in the world and 6,909th in The North Pacific for Highest Workforce Participation Rate, with 49.45 Workforce Participation Rate.
