Simone Republic

Population9.148 billion


CurrencyGold Bar

The World of Simone Republic is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Simone with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, free-roaming dinosaurs, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 9.148 billion Simonians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Administration. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mona. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.4%.

The frighteningly efficient Simonian economy, worth a remarkable 3,236 trillion Gold Bars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 353,836 Gold Bars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,209,795 per year while the poor average 76,087, a ratio of 15.9 to 1.

CSI Forest is this year's hit new crime show, cotton candy made from genuine cotton cellulose doesn't quite satisfy, annual government budgets include a sizeable spend on "making things look fabulous", and science centers and state of the art laboratories are ubiquitous. Crime is totally unknown. Simone Republic's national animal is the Reindeer, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is God.

Simone Republic is ranked 2,320th in the world and 93rd in The North Pacific for Most Subsidized Industry, scoring 14,032.17 on the Gilded Widget Scale.
