Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Star Empire of Old North Fish is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Emperor Munday with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, daily referendums, and multi-spousal wedding ceremonies. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 12.491 billion Fishians 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 medium-sized government prioritizes Defense, with Education, Industry, and Public Transport also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Metroscale. The average income tax rate is 66.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Fishian economy, worth a remarkable 1,357 trillion Scoles a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Soda Sales. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 108,715 Scoles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Amnesty Interregional has condemned Old North Fish for ignoring crimes against humanity, naturists are jailed regularly for indecent exposure, school uniforms are compulsory, and cars speed down national highways while drivers sleep at the wheel. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Old North Fish's national animal is the last Northern Speckled Bigfoot, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities, and its national religion is non-existent.

Old North Fish is ranked 23,702nd in the world and 1st in The Planet of Hiremus for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 4,470.67 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
