Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Holy Green Empire of Deidre Skye is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by Gaia Nick with a fair hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, unlimited-speed roads, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 17.606 billion Deidre Skyeans hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 9.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Deidre Skyean economy, worth a remarkable 1,848 trillion coconuts a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Gambling. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 104,965 coconuts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Students in Deidre Skye's schools rarely attend their classes, hammering a nail into a wall is an effective death sentence, election ballot papers are so long that unused ones are recycled as toilet roll, and personal injury lawyers are demanding compensation from the government after recent reductions in manufacturer liability. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Deidre Skye's national animal is the monkey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Deidre Skye is ranked 151,248th in the world and 16th in Free States of Gaia for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring -39.37 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
