Fed Sha Tho Plava

Population712 million

CurrencyGold Bar

The Dominion of Fed Sha Tho Plava is a huge, genial nation, remarkable for its ban on automobiles, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 712 million Plavians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Healthcare, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 68.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Plavian economy, worth 41.9 trillion Gold Bars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Book Publishing. Average income is 58,787 Gold Bars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The Very Hungry Caterpillar has been banned for advocating gluttony, all mothers are allowed six months fully-paid maternity leave, sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed, and Plavian police have to pay out of their own pockets for bulletproof vests. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fed Sha Tho Plava's national animal is the Bat, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Fed Sha Tho Plava is ranked 39,681st in the world and 2,207th in Osiris for Smartest Citizens, with 42.43 quips per hour.
