Earthly Heaven II

Population2.07 billion


The Republic of Earthly Heaven II is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its enforced nudity, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed population of 2.07 billion Earthly Heavenians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Administration, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 69.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Earthly Heaven IIian economy, worth 20.1 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Information Technology, Cheese Exports, Basket Weaving, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 9,706 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All industry is owned and run by the government, organ donation is compulsory, Earthly Heaven II has designated Earthly Heaven II City as its capital city, and the Federal Council of Earthly Heaven II has been announced as the new Head of State. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Earthly Heaven II's national animal is the kangaroo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Earthly Heaven II is ranked 84,971st in the world and 3,966th in The East Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 20.44 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
