Determined Nation

Population908 million



The Holy Empire of Determined Nation is a huge, genial nation, ruled by Billy with an even hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, public floggings, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The compassionate, devout population of 908 million Determined Nationians 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Utica. The average income tax rate is 77.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Determined Nationian economy, worth 95.2 trillion dollars a year, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 104,805 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

Companies are turning to trained Eagles for their most menial jobs, the poor are forced into bankruptcy by their energy bills, the nation's most "productive" diamond mine hasn't been operational for seven months, and stale 'yo mamma' insults have been replaced by 'your maternal DNA' insults. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Determined Nation's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Determined Nation is ranked 178,037th in the world and 7,268th in The North Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -2.83 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
