Now or Never

Population4.378 billion


The Republic of Now or Never is a massive, safe nation, notable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, enslaved workforce, and public floggings. The hard-nosed population of 4.378 billion Now or Neverians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 24.8%.

The thriving Now or Neverian economy, worth 364 trillion baht a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 83,164 baht, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 255,215 per year while the poor average 20,963, a ratio of 12.2 to 1.

Lawyers turn down litigation cases and corporate work in order to focus on lucrative public defence work, asking 'does my bum look big in this?' leads to 30 hours of self-esteem classes, major corporations receive tax breaks for no apparent reason, and student athletes gaze forlornly at abandoned sheepball fields. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Now or Never's national animal is the sheep, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Now or Never is ranked 81,693rd in the world and 5th in Twilight Nights for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 4,151.16 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
