Glorious Existence

Population18.291 billion


The United Socialist States of Glorious Existence is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its keen interest in outer space, sprawling nuclear power plants, and devotion to social welfare. The devout population of 18.291 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 91.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Glorious Existencean economy, worth a remarkable 1,500 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 82,040 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 103,312th in the world and 2,606th in the West Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 2,209.98 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
