Plarland Amex

Population2.303 billion

LeaderGompert Hergoluft


The Incorporated States of Plarland Amex is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Gompert Hergoluft with a fair hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, lack of airports, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.303 billion Plarland Amexians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Welfare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Amexia. The average income tax rate is 91.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Plarland Amexian economy, worth 282 trillion deniers 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 Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Retail. Average income is an impressive 122,518 deniers, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government has adopted a "Lightning Never Strikes Twice" approach to dealing with natural disasters, hordes of tourists are ruining the environment, surveillance cameras are banned, and one tree's worth of paperwork accompanies each imported log of timber. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Plarland Amex's national animal is the turtle, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Animism.

Plarland Amex is ranked 211,153rd in the world and 4,845th in the West Pacific for Most Corrupt Governments, with 0.51 kickbacks per hour.
