Free Culture

Population11.777 billion


The Empire of Free Culture is a gargantuan, efficient nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, otherworldly petting zoo, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cheerful population of 11.777 billion Free Cultureans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The tiny, liberal government is primarily concerned with Education, with Healthcare, Industry, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 4.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Free Culturean economy, worth a remarkable 2,579 trillion denaris a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 218,989 denaris, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Disability advocates are not amused that they are told to be dependent on Free Cultureans's kindness, 'To Regulate And Beyond' is the unofficial motto of the Free Culturean Space Agency, the government has announced its plans to construct a giant weaponised robot-cat, and the nation grinds to a halt on the anniversary of every marginally noteworthy event. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Free Culture's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Free Culture is ranked 2,303rd in the world and 98th in The North Pacific for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 8,228.69 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
