Red Finlandian Guard

Population623 million

The Armed Republic of Red Finlandian Guard is a huge, orderly nation, notable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 623 million Finlandians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The large, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Healthcare, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Almstedt. The average income tax rate is 64.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Finlandian economy, worth 46.1 trillion Markkaa a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Information Technology, and Retail. Average income is 73,997 Markkaa, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

The Ministry of Health has reported a sharp increase in the incidence of delayed menopause, banning party poppers has been a real party pooper, adverts proclaim it has to be healthy if the Mornay uses hand-grated Gallopavian Gruyère, and viewers get headaches from trying to read the screen full of small print warnings that precede most TV shows. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Red Finlandian Guard's national animal is the Brown Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Red Finlandian Guard is ranked 244,202nd in the world and 555th in Conch Kingdom for Highest Drug Use, scoring 10.8 on the Pineapple Fondness Rating.
