The Haha grape of Pledonia is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Lukas Gronseth with a fair hand, and renowned for its punitive income tax rates, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.092 billion Pledonians 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 enormous, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Brynheim. The average income tax rate is 72.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The thriving Pledonian economy, worth 477 trillion Ducals a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Cheese Exports, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 78,381 Ducals, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Programmers often reinvent the wheel, libraries are now installed with jacuzzis and mini-bars, college students make ends meet by selling their kidneys, and laser-wielding robots are taking aim at human hearts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pledonia's national animal is the Dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
Pledonia is ranked 27,829th in the world and 708th in The East Pacific for Lowest Crime Rates, with 78.81 law-abiding acts per hour.
