Java Addict

Population23.586 billion


The Queen's State of Java Addict is a gargantuan, safe nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, state-planned economy, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 23.586 billion Java Addictians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 48.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Java Addictian economy, worth 846 trillion betales a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Basket Weaving, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 35,890 betales, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, the nation is famous for having one of the world's largest deer hunting institutions, the government is avowedly atheist, and the government is reining in public spending. Crime is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Java Addict's national animal is the deer, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Java Addict is ranked 104,471st in the world and 2nd in Antigua and Barbuda for Largest Governments, scoring 13 on the Bureaucratic Comprehensiveness Rating Scale Index.
