The Democratic Republic of Netherking Land is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lord President Vros Von Vrossenonstein with a fair hand, and notable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, irreverence towards religion, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.765 billion Netherking Landians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.
The enormous, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Welfare, Environment, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality is ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nuclear Bunker FG706I9. The average income tax rate is 90.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Netherking Landian economy, worth 217 trillion Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 123,135 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
An increasing percentage of the population's youth have homosexual parents, surrogate mothers are encouraged to refer to their wombs as 'rental space', families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain, and sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Netherking Land's national animal is the Tyrannosaurus rex, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
