Free Living Men

The United States of Free Living Men is a colossal, efficient nation, remarkable for its ubiquitous missile silos, smutty television, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 7.26 billion Free Living Menians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The tiny, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Free Living Menian economy, worth a remarkable 1,151 trillion Denaris a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 158,633 Denaris, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 767,172 per year while the poor average 19,028, a ratio of 40.3 to 1.

Older ladies are inundated with offers to help them cross the road, you can't spell society without CIS, eminent domain has been abolished, and employees are told they can avoid traffic jams by starting work at 4 AM. Crime, especially youth-related, is all-pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Free Living Men's national animal is the Badger, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Free Living Men is ranked 23,630th in the world and 79th in Capitalist Paradise for Most Influential, scoring 1,907 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
