Go Away Progressives

Population15.114 billion

LeaderDavid Crockett


The Allied States of Go Away Progressives is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by David Crockett with an even hand, and renowned for its public floggings, smutty television, and pith helmet sales. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 15.114 billion Go Away Progressivesians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, pro-business individuals is primarily concerned with Defense, although Law & Order and Environment are also considered important, while Welfare and Social Policy aren't funded at all. Income tax is unheard of.

The Go Away Progressivesian economy, worth a remarkable 1,707 trillion ouncesofgolds a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Soda Sales, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is an impressive 112,959 ouncesofgolds, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 479,300 per year while the poor average 17,171, a ratio of 27.9 to 1.

Anything is permissible when wearing latex gloves, fifty years of pension funds can disappear in half a second, the law says it's okay to sell a bomb to a terrorist so long as they promise not to detonate it, and ports have ground to a halt as no boat can reach them without trespassing. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Go Away Progressives's national animal is the Bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Go Away Progressives is ranked 4,720th in the world and 42nd in Capitalist Paradise for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 7,177.73 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
