Pridelantic people

Population7.051 billion


The Nomadic People of Pridelantic people is a colossal, safe nation, renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, museums and concert halls, and frequent executions. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 7.051 billion Pridelantics have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 67.5%.

The thriving Pridelantic peoplean economy, worth 390 trillion bitcoins a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Pizza Delivery, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 55,348 bitcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Leader's new office has a propensity to catch on fire, people who do not complete their community service are sentenced to more community service, academics have a bone to pick with free market entrepreneurs, and a rolling news ticker tape of disclaimers runs across the bottom of the screen on all TV shows. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Pridelantic people's national animal is the leopard, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Pridelantic people is ranked 208,901st in the world and 7,772nd in Osiris for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -2.83 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
