Speak Yourself

Population1.048 billion



The Federation of Speak Yourself is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by RM with an even hand, and remarkable for its museums and concert halls, complete lack of prisons, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, devout population of 1.048 billion ARMYs have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Seven. The average income tax rate is 69.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Speak Yourselfian economy, worth 89.7 trillion Airpods a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 85,614 Airpods, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

RM has been known to threaten dissenting citizens with a machine gun at press conferences, sales of disinfectant wipes have skyrocketed, polychromatic seas of leaves blanket the ground while sewers and drain pipes are clogged by their detritus, and lending money has become a major liability. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Speak Yourself's national animal is the Alpaca, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Speak Yourself is ranked 184,509th in the world and 8,104th in the South Pacific for Most Extreme, scoring 6.25 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
