Dirkistan

Population578 million

CurrencyDirks
Animal3 Headed Dragon

The Republic of Dirkistan is a huge, safe nation, notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 578 million Dirkistanians 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 juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 33.3%.

The thriving Dirkistanian economy, worth 56.9 trillion Dirks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 98,367 Dirks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.5 times as much as the poorest.

Science centers and state of the art laboratories are ubiquitous, protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, citizens spend millions on microtransactions to feed virtual orphans while actual orphans starve overseas, and the contraband cigarette trade is lighting up across Dirkistan. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Dirkistan's national animal is the 3 Headed Dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Dirkistan is ranked 99,903rd in the world and 3,367th in the South Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 48.44 on the Rand Index.
