Egregious Erudition

Population749 million



The Free Land of Egregious Erudition is a huge, safe nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, ubiquitous missile silos, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 749 million Erudites enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Spirituality, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Egregion. The average income tax rate is 51.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Egregious economy, worth 80.4 trillion $hillings a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Retail, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 107,303 $hillings, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Life is short but human kindness is endless, the criminal underworld is awash with sausage smuggling, students learn how to disarm mines before understanding basic arithmetic, and clergy never mention brand names for fear of losing their government subsidies. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Egregious Erudition's national animal is the Goozeberry, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Egregious Erudition is ranked 135,836th in the world and 145th in Texas for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -8 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
