Living Stones

Population9.43 billion



The Assembly of Living Stones is a colossal, genial nation, renowned for its public floggings, anti-smoking policies, and unlimited-speed roads. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 9.43 billion Living Stonesians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Education, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Temperance. The average income tax rate is 69.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The thriving Living Stonesian economy, worth 833 trillion Pounds a year, is highly specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Pizza Delivery, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 88,395 Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Prisoners regularly escape detention posing as scarecrows, the voyages of obsolete star-trekking satellites on deliberate escape orbits are only just beginning, in a desperate bid for cheap airfare Living Stonesians can be seen jogging in a rubber suit just before flying, and prolonged government investigations are a common revenge tactic among spurned spouses. Crime is totally unknown. Living Stones's national animal is the Lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

Living Stones is ranked 26,078th in the world and 5th in The Snowy Peninsula for Most Developed, scoring 70.25 on the Human Development Index.
