Glorious Existence

Population18.862 billion


The United Socialist States of Glorious Existence is a gargantuan, safe nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and sprawling nuclear power plants. The devout population of 18.862 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, Environment, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 91.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Glorious Existencean economy, worth a remarkable 1,557 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 82,587 Drudges, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Interest rates mysteriously drop whenever the CBGE Governor goes house hunting, 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, and in a fit of passion Leader has shredded thirty years' worth of petitions. 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 49,578th in the world and 869th in the West Pacific for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 90.52 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
