Prince Kropotkin

Population4.259 billion



The Free Land of Prince Kropotkin is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by none with a fair hand, and notable for its ban on automobiles, compulsory vegetarianism, and irreverence towards religion. The democratic population of 4.259 billion Prince Kropotkinians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The enormous, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of none. The average income tax rate is 66.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Prince Kropotkinian economy, worth 182 trillion breads 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, quite specialized black market in Tourism, Gambling, Basket Weaving, and Soda Sales. 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 42,905 breads, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.0 times as much as the poorest.

The nation is currently revamping its entire education system, murderers frequently escape punishment by claiming they were protecting their honour, the nation's ambassadors often conduct their business in jail cells, and town nameplates frequently raise giggles from passing tourists. Crime is almost non-existent. Prince Kropotkin's national animal is the horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is none.

Prince Kropotkin is ranked 238,012th in the world and 1st in Urras and Anarres for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring -40.81 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
