Hylandian Republic

Population677 million


The Republic of Hylandian Republic is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, infamous sell-swords, and state-planned economy. The compassionate, democratic population of 677 million Hylandian Republicians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government is primarily concerned with Education, with Administration, Healthcare, and Environment also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 68.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Hylandian Republician economy, worth 21.8 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 highly specialized, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 32,273 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Children are brainwashed at a young age to accept "love and peace!" as a way of life, RPG fans reminisce fondly about when people thought they were evil and dangerous rather than geeky and socially inept, lawyers spend as much time preparing their make-up as they do their briefs, and the government mails weekly updates on the new anti-junk mail laws to every citizen. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Hylandian Republic's national animal is the bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Hylandian Republic is ranked 175,153rd in the world and 862nd in Europe for Highest Economic Output, with 21.8 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
