La Patente

Population686 million

CurrencySesterce
Animalkangaroo

The Republic of La Patente is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its ubiquitous missile silos, complete lack of prisons, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 686 million La Patenteans have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The relatively small government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Environment, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 23.6%.

The all-consuming La Patentean economy, worth 92.0 trillion Sesterces a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 134,041 Sesterces, with the richest citizens earning 6.1 times as much as the poorest.

The phrase 'spreading like wildfire' is no longer in the public lexicon, where there's smoke there's the La Patentean Forestry Department, wind farms are erected on shuttered oil platforms, and asking what someone does for a living is considered a faux pax for being potentially jobist. Crime is totally unknown. La Patente's national animal is the kangaroo, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

La Patente is ranked 70,205th in the world and 2,774th in the South Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 1,163.83 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
