Greater Ale Permars

Population668 million



The Empire of Greater Ale Permars is a huge, cultured nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, ubiquitous missile silos, and avowedly heterosexual populace. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 668 million Greater Ale Permarsians are free to succeed or fail in life on their own merits; the successful tend to enjoy an opulent (but moralistic) lifestyle, while the failures can be seen crowding out most jails.

The medium-sized, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Lyns. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 39.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Greater Ale Permarsian economy, worth 70.6 trillion Permarks a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 105,692 Permarks, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 595,188 per year while the poor average 9,254, a ratio of 64.3 to 1.

It is said that a Greater Ale Permarsian woman's work is never done, the government has an entire department dedicated to staring at microscopes and writing down letters, morale within the seismologist community has hit rock bottom, and crossword puzzles have been co-opted as a symbol of racial discrimination. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Greater Ale Permars's national animal is the Jaguar, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Greater Ale Permars is ranked 24,839th in the world and 767th in The North Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 75.67 on the Rand Index.
