Free Syria

Population537 million

CapitalNew Damascus


The People's Republic of Free Syria is a huge, efficient nation, renowned for its ban on automobiles, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 537 million Free Syrians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of New Damascus. The average income tax rate is 60.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Free Syrian economy, worth 37.3 trillion Lire a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 69,476 Lire, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Citizens are encouraged to report friends, family members or co-workers who seem depressed to the government for "counselling", tax-payers are funding ever more extravagant movie projects, foreigners with shady pasts are fleeing the country, and a degree in Leader Science with a Minor in Awesomeology starts many political careers. Crime is totally unknown. Free Syria's national animal is the Hawk, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Free Syria is ranked 43,617th in the world and 159th in Refugia for Most Income Equality, scoring 63.45 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
