Quirks of Lightning

The Free Land of Quirks of Lightning is a large, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its compulsory military service. The compassionate, hard-working, cynical population of 85 million Quirks of Lightningians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 10.9%.

The Quirks of Lightningian economy, worth 4.12 trillion marjs a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Gambling, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 48,479 marjs, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.5 times as much as the poorest.

Bike rage is all the rage, the nationalised Arms Manufacturing Industry is not interested in making weapons, artists are pillars of society, and the WhoTube comments section has gone strangely quiet. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent. Quirks of Lightning's national animal is the black mamba, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Quirks of Lightning is ranked 146,102nd in the world and 6,122nd in the South Pacific for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -8.6 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
