The Republic of I went surfing is a small, socially progressive nation, notable for its irreverence towards religion and punitive income tax rates. The democratic population of 31 million surfers, all of whom are zombies, are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
The enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 57.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The developing surferian economy, worth 929 billion rupees a year, is quite specialized and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 23,226 rupees, and distributed extremely evenly, with little 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. I went surfing's national animal is the giraffe, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
