Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The New Congressional Republic of Ejyafjallajokull is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by the National Government with an even hand, and notable for its closed borders, daily referendums, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 10.141 billion Ejyafjallajokullians enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The enormous government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Welfare, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Defense receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of KirkjubŠjarklaustur. The average income tax rate is 98.5%.

The all-consuming Ejyafjallajokullian economy, worth a remarkable 1,762 trillion Ejyafjallajokullian Krˇnas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an impressive 173,765 Ejyafjallajokullian Krˇnas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

Exorbitant spending on icebreakers breaks the ice at every budget meeting, citizens are arrested for naturally producing proteins, a new guerrilla marketing campaign for tap water involves government agents spraying random citizens with hose water, and libraries have replaced overdue book fines with mandatory mental health assessments. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ejyafjallajokull's national animal is the Great Ejyafjallajokullian Auk, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is virtually obsolete Catholicism.

Ejyafjallajokull is ranked 6,155th in the world and 9th in Scandinavia for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 67.49 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
