Socialist Sloopje

Population14.13 billion

The Woodhouse Sanctum of Socialist Sloopje is a gargantuan, genial nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, state-planned economy, and otherworldly petting zoo. The compassionate population of 14.13 billion Socialist Sloopjeans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 74.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Socialist Sloopjean economy, worth 553 trillion $$s a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly comprised of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 39,181 $$s, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Elementary school students are required to master Bach's Chaconne in D before graduation, disadvantaged neighbourhoods have become no-go areas after sundown, officials pull all-nighters to check immigrants for potential links to terrorists, and roosters that herald the rising sun are immediately sent to the slaughterhouse. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Socialist Sloopje's national animal is the Laughing swordfish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Socialist Sloopje is ranked 19,551st in the world and 1st in Communist Beach for Most Cheerful Citizens, with 52.91 Percentage Of Water Glasses Perceived Half-Full.
