LeaderBig Kahuna Sergio


The Republic of Sergioica is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Big Kahuna Sergio with a fair hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 2.86 billion Sergioicans 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 Industry, although Administration, Defense, and Healthcare are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Krepost. The average income tax rate is 54.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Sergioican economy, worth 385 trillion Piastas a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Average income is an impressive 134,632 Piastas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation is stuck in permanent election mode as politicians demand constant do-overs, blind students are at a disadvantage now that test papers printed in braille have been discontinued, a third of Sergioicans are e-certified CEOs, and the poor are forced into bankruptcy by their energy bills. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Sergioica's national animal is the Fox, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.

Sergioica is ranked 270,920th in the world and 5,221st in The East Pacific for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 22.67 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
