Polistant

The Holy Empire of Polistant is a small, safe nation, notable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 40 million Polistantians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 33.1%.

The strong Polistantian economy, worth 2.58 trillion Ronguks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Woodchip Exports, Automobile Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 64,451 Ronguks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Meat prices are soaring as the farming industry struggle under government-imposed restrictions, park rangers perform full-body searches on suspected fungus smugglers, the Fashion Channel can only be viewed on widescreen TVs, and the military patrols the streets in search of possible secessionists. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Polistant's national animal is the Elefante, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Polistant is ranked 66,391st in the world and 1st in south of polistant for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 2,531.71 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
