Second Sovereignty

Population2.919 billion



The Sovereign of Second Sovereignty is a massive, genial nation, notable for its museums and concert halls, state-planned economy, and smutty television. The compassionate population of 2.919 billion Sovereigns enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, liberal, socially-minded government prioritizes Education, with Administration, Social Policy, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kiravit. The average income tax rate is 93.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sovereign economy, worth 339 trillion Sovereigns a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 116,305 Sovereigns, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Calling dibs is an unalienable right, arguments about toilet seats being left up or down get surprisingly heated, 'Totally Not Partisan News' is a line item on the government budget, and the slowest students feel vaguely targeted by their Mendelian Inheritance coursework. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Second Sovereignty's national animal is the Kimati, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Second Sovereignty is ranked 284,151st in the world and 1,319th in The Communist Bloc for Most Patriotic, with 0.38 flags saluted per person per day.
