Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Democratic States of Peace and Cooperation is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by Primus inter Pares with a fair hand, and notable for its anti-smoking policies, rampant corporate plagiarism, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic population of 911 million Peace and Cooperationians 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, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Welfare, Environment, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Hope. The average income tax rate is 87.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Peace and Cooperationian economy, worth 116 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 highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 127,928 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Peace and Cooperation has one of the largest offshore wind farms in the world, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, children crying over dropped ice creams are offered high doses of experimental antidepressants, and Primus inter Pares's peyote-induced "let's all just be friends" speech is trending world-wide. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Peace and Cooperation's national animal is the tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Peace and Cooperation is ranked 154,032nd in the world and 8,206th in The North Pacific for Most Primitive, scoring -297.2 on the Scary Big Number Scale.
