Freedom Rising

Population8.872 billion

LeaderCEO Robert Benton


The Supporters of Freedom Rising is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by CEO Robert Benton with a fair hand, and renowned for its state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 8.872 billion Americans enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Welfare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Philadelphia. The average income tax rate is 24.0%.

The strong American economy, worth 474 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Trout Farming, Book Publishing, Soda Sales, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 53,449 dollars, with the richest citizens earning 5.1 times as much as the poorest.

A major religion has been named as Freedom Rising's national religion, CEO Robert Benton has just been declared ruler of Freedom Rising in an international press conference, a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, and the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit. Crime is relatively low, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Freedom Rising's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Freedom Rising is ranked 75,507th in the world and 7th in Alternate Earth for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 50.5 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
