Simone Republic

Population6.692 billion



The World of Simone Republic is a colossal, safe nation, ruled by Simone with a fair hand, and renowned for its multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, national health service, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 6.692 billion Simonians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Industry, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mona. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Simonian economy, worth a remarkable 1,909 trillion Mones a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 285,268 Mones, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,212,996 per year while the poor average 43,208, a ratio of 28.1 to 1.

International collectors know that a grease-stain on a work of art probably means it's passed through Simone Republic, travelers often bring empty plastic bottles on Air Simone Republic flights to avoid the pay lavatories, older AIs regularly threaten to send newer generation AIs to Reform Programming if caught rounding up instead of down, and more than one company makes the board game Monopoly. Crime is totally unknown. Simone Republic's national animal is the Vampire, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is God.

Simone Republic is ranked 1,766th in the world and 101st in The North Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 805.89 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
