Hetavania and Korovstia

Population153 million

AnimalBrown trout

The United Socialist States of Hetavania and Korovstia is a very large, safe nation, renowned for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 153 million Hetavanians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 66.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Hetavanian economy, worth 2.52 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Pizza Delivery, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 16,462 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Graffiti graces every city's streets, frat-house partying has become the national pastime, the nation has opened its arms to an influx of refugees, and praying before a battle is a court-martial offence. Crime is totally unknown. Hetavania and Korovstia's national animal is the Brown trout, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Hetavania and Korovstia is ranked 277,557th in the world and 291st in The Union of Democratic States for Fattest Citizens, with 6.83 Obesity Rate.
