Solie Zerca

Population134 million

The People's Republic of Solie Zerca is a very large, cultured nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service, frequent executions, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 134 million Zercans are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Welfare, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 66.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Zercan economy, worth 6.85 trillion Bemen a year, is quite specialized and led by the Automobile Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 51,125 Bemen, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Pet owners must make a payment if their charges leave a deposit, panels from bankrupt rooftop solar companies are used as props for sci-fi B-movies, toddler groups have taken over local libraries, and the automotive industry soaks up huge government handouts. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Solie Zerca's national animal is the Monkey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Solie Zerca is ranked 192,536th in the world and 49th in Grand Abbeyverne Republic for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.72 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
