The Republic of Goopycalamari51 is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, complete lack of prisons, and enslaved workforce. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 513 million Goopycalamari51ians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.
The large, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Welfare, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 36.4%.
The Goopycalamari51ian economy, worth 23.3 trillion Credits a year, is led by the Pizza Delivery industry, with major contributions from Basket Weaving, Uranium Mining, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 45,483 Credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 145,590 per year while the poor average 10,786, a ratio of 13.5 to 1.
Conversion therapy coupons are a popular present for coming of age ceremonies, flipping a coin to make a decision leads to a referral to Gambling Addiction Services, gambling is outlawed, and the military patrols the streets in search of possible secessionists. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Goopycalamari51's national animal is the Zebra.
