Overview Factbook Dispatches People Government Economy Rank Trend

The United Socialist States of Personal Freedom is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by The Dead Rock Star Council with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 10.42 billion Free Persons hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of San Tropez. The average income tax rate is 50.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Freed economy, worth 843 trillion Freedmen 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 dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. Average income is 80,945 Freedmen, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Waste is frequently shipped to other countries, a firework a day does not in fact keep the doctor away, visions of giant pink Albatrosses are a common side effect after Free Persons eat their meals, and a recent political speech drew the ire of nerds everywhere after the speaker claimed that Darth Vader was Harry Potter's father. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Personal Freedom's national animal is the Albatross, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Personal Freedom is ranked 49,286th in the world and 28th in Hippy Haven for Most Extreme, scoring 21.94 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
