Nankyoku Tairiku

Population1.611 billion


CurrencyMinami Yen

The Kingdom of Nankyoku Tairiku is a massive, genial nation, ruled by 水原高晴 with an even hand, and renowned for its complete lack of prisons, free-roaming dinosaurs, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 1.611 billion Nankyoku Tairikujins 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nankyo. The average income tax rate is 86.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Nankyoku economy, worth 231 trillion Minami Yen a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 143,445 Minami Yen, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Wealthy pranksters dump refuse on unsuspecting citizens from up high, college-level writing classes are taught by undergraduate editors of the school newspaper, foreign governments are threatened if they so much as mention the word "election", and political scientists despair as the national mascot election eclipses all others in voter enthusiasm. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nankyoku Tairiku's national animal is the falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Anglicanism.

Nankyoku Tairiku is ranked 42,335th in the world and 2,051st in the South Pacific for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 51.48 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
