Second Best Olympian 3

Population1.179 billion


The Incorporated States of Second Best Olympian 3 is a massive, orderly nation, remarkable for its ritual sacrifices, frequent executions, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, cynical, devout population of 1.179 billion Second Best Olympian 3ians 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 government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 46.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Second Best Olympian 3ian economy, worth 37.7 trillion cards a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Tourism, Gambling, Woodchip Exports, and Automobile Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 31,979 cards, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Traffic cops spend most of their work-hours calculating citizens' monthly income, politicians accepting drinks in bars are executed for taking bribes, for the sake of 'public interest' news programs tell viewers how to home-make Sarin gas bombs, and the government baselessly accuses foreign dignitaries of being assassins. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Second Best Olympian 3's national animal is the legendary, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Second Best Olympian 3 is ranked 85,871st in the world and 14th in Second Best Olympians for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 218.63 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
