Resilient Acceleration

Population160 million


The Allied States of Resilient Acceleration is a very large, safe nation, remarkable for its irreverence towards religion and suspicion of poets. The hard-working, democratic population of 160 million Olympians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Welfare, Law & Order, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. The average income tax rate is 20.6%.

The Resilient Accelerationian economy, worth 7.33 trillion dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Door-to-door Insurance Sales industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 45,817 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

The government awards prizes to television shows featuring stereotype-breaking minority roles, a large-scale revitalization of the education system is underway, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, and art criticism in Resilient Acceleration is scathingly destructive. Crime is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Resilient Acceleration's national animal is the fox, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Resilient Acceleration is ranked 139,680th in the world and 4,893rd in the South Pacific for Best Weather, with 100 Meters Of Sunlight.
