Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Free Republic of Rich Scholars is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Leader with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, smutty television, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 29.376 billion Rich Scholarsians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Industry, with Education and Law & Order also on the agenda, while Social Policy and Environment receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Rich Scholars City. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient Rich Scholarsian economy, worth an astonishing 10,908 trillion books a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is an amazing 371,327 books, but there is a vast disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 3,312,240 per year while the poor average 5,542, a ratio of 597 to 1.

Pristine wilderness has been trashed in the quest for cheaper oil, shanty towns are forming in the suburbs of major cities, the country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, and citizens who leave the country are officially classed as traitors. Crime is pervasive, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Rich Scholars's national animal is the bookworm, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Rich Scholars is ranked 84,995th in the world and 2,565th in Balder for Most Average, scoring 36.59 on the Average Standardized Normality Scale.
