Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of Providence and Port Hope is a gargantuan, socially progressive nation, ruled by President George Roberts with an even hand, and notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless, devout population of 10.591 billion Provincians enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

There is no government in the normal sense of the word; however, a small group of community-minded, liberal, pro-business individuals prioritizes Spirituality, although Law & Order, Defense, and Education are also considered important, while Environment and Industry are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Providence. Income tax is unheard of.

The large but stagnant Provincian economy, worth 105 trillion Provincian Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is fairly diversified and led by the Pizza Delivery industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Information Technology, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 9,917 Provincian Dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 43,555 per year while the poor average 1,419, a ratio of 30.7 to 1.

Councils up and down the country wrangle over legal matters, the automobile industry is sitting up and taking notice of the new 24 hour race events... as are the track's sleepless neighbours, nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers, and idyllic countryside scenes see border collies herding sixty-ton dinosaurs. Crime, especially youth-related, is pervasive, probably because of the absence of a police force. Providence and Port Hope's national animal is the Dolphin, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Secularism.

Providence and Port Hope is ranked 133,341st in the world and 42nd in League of Christian Nations for Most Authoritarian, with 0.01 Stalins.
