Hoping For The Best

Population3.308 billion



The Most Serene Republic of Hoping For The Best is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and notable for its avant-garde cinema, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 3.308 billion HeftyBestians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Antimilitaropolis. The average income tax rate is 55.0%.

The thriving Hoping For The Bestian economy, worth 255 trillion pieces a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 77,265 pieces, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Suburban backyards are seized by the government and turned into national parks, town welcome signs list corporate sponsors, belligerent citizens shoot at passing clouds for 'violating their airspace', and the combined alert sound of a nation simultaneously receiving a text message is a common cause of hearing damage. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hoping For The Best's national animal is the mantaray, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Hoping For The Best is ranked 145,166th in the world and 159th in New Western Empire for Fattest Citizens, with 7.59 Obesity Rate.
