Glorious Existence

Population16.741 billion


The United Socialist States of Glorious Existence is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and stringent health and safety legislation. The devout population of 16.741 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 90.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Glorious Existencean economy, worth a remarkable 1,334 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 79,692 Drudges, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It's harder to qualify for IVF than for a good university, 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, and the Glorious Existence City Film Festival recently voted 'Glorious Existencean Getting Hit By Football' as best film. 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 116,839th in the world and 3,032nd in the West Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 455.51 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
