Free Algerstonia

Population927 million


The I Don't Know of Free Algerstonia is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its frequent executions, zero percent divorce rate, and restrictive gun laws. The cynical, devout population of 927 million Free Algerstonians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 42.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Free Algerstonian economy, worth 18.3 trillion dollars a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 19,745 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Religious classes are compulsory for all school students, the government violently suppresses separatist movements, punk rockers smash it up and then clean it up, and politicians look weirdly alike. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Free Algerstonia's national animal is the swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Free Algerstonia is ranked 253,689th in the world and 9,524th in The East Pacific for Highest Drug Use, scoring 3.6 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
