Free Culture

Population13.958 billion


The Empire of Free Culture is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, public floggings, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, cheerful population of 13.958 billion Free Cultureans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The tiny government is primarily concerned with Education, although Industry, Healthcare, and Environment are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. The average income tax rate is 7.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Free Culturean economy, worth a remarkable 3,289 trillion denaris a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. Average income is an amazing 235,671 denaris, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Voting is voluntary, the government has stated an intention to min-max its stats for 'teh pwnage', citizens are permitted to carry concealed handguns, and fur coats have become the latest fashion trend. Crime is almost non-existent. Free Culture's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Free Culture is ranked 153,980th in the world and 8,655th in The North Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 6.87 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
