Port Caverton

Population1.326 billion

The Republic of Port Caverton is a massive, socially progressive nation, renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and smutty television. The hard-nosed population of 1.326 billion Port Cavertonians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 28.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Port Cavertonian economy, worth 204 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, broadly diversified black market in Tourism, Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Book Publishing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an impressive 153,924 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government's stance on marriage is 'Let Port Cavertonians marry themselves', police struggle to solve crimes due to the lack of fingerprint records, home renovation projects take decades to complete, and debate rages over whether ground fish guts can be spread on fields. Crime is relatively low. Port Caverton's national animal is the Skateboard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Port Caverton is ranked 26,338th in the world and 610th in the Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 207.49 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
