Divided Free Land

Population514 million



The United Socialist States of Divided Free Land is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 514 million Kumarians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Namhung. The average income tax rate is 84.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Kumarian economy, worth 52.4 trillion Grogeyas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 101,946 Grogeyas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

One-man canoes fitted with the latest tracking technology leave no room for one man, truncheon-mounted cameras record the beating of criminals in dynamic HD detail, fashion magazine covers finally display realistic body images following photo-manipulation becoming illegal, and traffic cops spend most of their work-hours calculating citizens' monthly income. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Divided Free Land's national animal is the Overase, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Divided Free Land is ranked 174,339th in the world and 8,664th in The North Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 473.27 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
