Glorious Existence

Population21.81 billion


The United Socialist States of Glorious Existence is a gargantuan, genial nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, sprawling nuclear power plants, and devotion to social welfare. The devout population of 21.81 billion Glorious Existenceans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, liberal morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 91.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Glorious Existencean economy, worth a remarkable 1,823 trillion Drudges a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 83,592 Drudges, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

NPCs in MMORPGs regularly interrupt cutscenes with OOC reminders that they aren't real people, the Glorious Existence City Film Festival recently voted 'Glorious Existencean Getting Hit By Football' as best film, in a fit of passion Leader has shredded thirty years' worth of petitions, and depression sinks in after each election when voters realize they are stuck with these people for years. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Glorious Existence's national animal is the Leech, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Glorious Existence is ranked 264,809th in the world and 5,948th in the West Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.46 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
