Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Queen's State of Fort Rae is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its complete lack of prisons, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-working, democratic population of 17.283 billion Fort Raeans 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 enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Welfare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 56.0%.

The Fort Raean economy, worth 645 trillion betales 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 Gambling, Automobile Manufacturing, 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 37,376 betales, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.

Voting is voluntary. Crime is relatively low, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fort Rae's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Fort Rae is ranked 88,465th in the world and 1,034th in Ancient Lands for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 62.67 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
