Hurricane Sandy

The Republic of Hurricane Sandy is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its punitive income tax rates, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 6.244 billion Hurricane Sandyians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Social Policy, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 63.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Hurricane Sandyian economy, worth 16.0 trillion Light Posts a year, is highly specialized and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming and Information Technology. Black market activity is extensive. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 2,569 Light Posts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hurricane Sandy's national animal is the Wind Spirit, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Hurricane Sandy is ranked 50,272nd in the world and 115th in Spiritus for Most Cultured, scoring 68 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
