The Republic of Dutchsche is a huge, genial nation, notable for its compulsory military service, state-planned economy, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate population of 358 million Dutch 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. The average income tax rate is 13.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The sizeable but inefficient Dutch economy, worth 18.0 trillion euros a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Basket Weaving, and Gambling. Average income is 50,259 euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Groups of three or more trees are cut down in the name of 'child safety', an increasing number of citizens believe the world is flat, it's rare to find an unchewed pencil, and families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Dutchsche's national animal is the weed, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
