Land of the Cross

Population193 million

The Theocracy of Land of the Cross is a very large, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its anti-smoking policies, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, hard-working, devout population of 193 million Crossians are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The large, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Welfare, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 53.8%.

The very strong Land of the Crossian economy, worth 12.6 trillion dollars a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Basket Weaving, and Information Technology. Average income is 65,304 dollars, with the richest citizens earning 6.4 times as much as the poorest.

Tourists need only sign on the dotted line to become citizens, people can't decide between preserving forests and buying print copies of 'Dogman Versus The Giggler', factories grind to a halt every time there is an election, and the amount welfare recipients spend on fertilizer has exploded. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Land of the Cross's national animal is the lamb, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Land of the Cross is ranked 64,327th in the world and 2,950th in The North Pacific for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 152,225.55 Standard Monetary Units.
