Le Free Republic

Population2.605 billion

LeaderKing Pico
FaithPico Fundamentalism


The Kingdom of Le Free Republic is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by King Pico with an iron fist, and renowned for its sprawling nuclear power plants, keen interest in outer space, and smutty television. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 2.605 billion Pico's sons are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Stoneginger. The average income tax rate is 42.1%.

The all-consuming Le Free Republician economy, worth 272 trillion picobucks a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 104,567 picobucks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

The government's religious works are headed by a New Age guru, dynamite sales and concert audiences are booming, the installation of street lights across remote goat tracks has left citizens bemused, and signs of extraterrestrial life are just foreign astronauts evading Le Free Republician justice. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Le Free Republic's national animal is the Platypus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Pico Fundamentalism.

Le Free Republic is ranked 247,273rd in the world and 10,653rd in The North Pacific for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -12.22 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
