Overview Policies People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Free Land of Old Frontier is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its zero percent divorce rate, unlimited-speed roads, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 422 million Frontiersmen love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Harrisburg. The average income tax rate is 36.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Frontier economy, worth 9.01 trillion dollars a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 21,342 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Blind students are at a disadvantage now that test papers printed in braille have been discontinued, artists are pillars of society, prisons are filled with the cackles and sobs of a deranged inmate population, and the recital of citations that follows any political speech can be longer than the speech itself. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force. Old Frontier's national animal is the buffalo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Old Frontier is ranked 44,397th in the world and 5th in Alternate Earth for Nudest, with 175.75 Cheeks Per Square Mile.
