Pickens Nation

Population345 million

The Republic of Pickens Nation is a huge, safe nation, notable for its aversion to nipples, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 345 million Pickens Cultists are highly moralistic and fiercely conservative, in the sense that they tend to believe most things should be outlawed. People who have good jobs and work quietly at them are lauded; others are viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small government prioritizes Industry, although Education, Law & Order, and Defense are also considered important, while Spirituality and Environment aren't funded at all. The average income tax rate is 17.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Pickens Nationian economy, worth 40.8 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Soda Sales, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is an impressive 118,326 Dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Politicians who vacation in East Lebatuck lose their jobs upon their return, referenda can be called for any law at the request of at least one third of the voting population, homeless people can be found sleeping on streets in front of unoccupied second homes, and history textbook pages are used as impromptu tissues by distraught students. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pickens Nation's national animal is the Wolf, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Pickens Nation is ranked 10,915th in the world and 85th in 10000 Islands for Fattest Citizens, with 17.08 Obesity Rate.
