Forest State

The Wastelands of Forest State is a colossal, socially progressive nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, complete absence of social welfare, and spontaneously combusting cars. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 8.313 billion Forestans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is primarily concerned with Law & Order, with Defense, Education, and Spirituality also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Welfare receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.9%.

The very strong Forestan economy, worth 584 trillion NSDS a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Information Technology, and Gambling. Average income is 70,260 NSDS, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 364,372 per year while the poor average 7,340, a ratio of 49.6 to 1.

The country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, government popup ads are springing up like weeds, euthanasia is legal, and the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit. Crime is moderate. Forest State's national animal is the snow leopard, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Forest State is ranked 21,624th in the world and 8th in Nationalist Commonwealth of Free Regions for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 5,024.06 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
