Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Test of Sentimental Journey is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Nyame with an iron fist, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, suspicion of poets, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 3.935 billion Sentimental Journeyians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Environment, with Spirituality, Law & Order, and Education also on the agenda, while Welfare receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Timbuktoo. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 43.5%.

The strong Sentimental Journeyian economy, worth 144 trillion pennies a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 36,629 pennies, with the richest citizens earning 5.7 times as much as the poorest.

Foreigners are treated with great suspicion, minority children spend hours bussing to schools miles away from home, shanty towns are forming in the suburbs of major cities, and customs turn away those considered to have an unfavourable ethnicity. Crime is moderate. Sentimental Journey's national animal is the dog, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Cosmology.

Sentimental Journey is ranked 65,845th in the world and 2nd in The Crownlands for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 73.07 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
