Stumphosse Res

Population4.074 billion



The Democratic Republic of Stumphosse Res is a massive, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its ban on automobiles, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.074 billion Stumphosse Residents are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government prioritizes Healthcare, although Environment, Administration, and Education are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Morbon. The average income tax rate is 77.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Stumphosse Resident economy, worth 290 trillion Resas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Trout Farming, and Arms Manufacturing. Average income is 71,292 Resas, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Military equipment stores have a tendency to go up in flames, a faint smell of body odour can be detected at several miles' distance from the National Science Park, the government has announced its plans to construct a giant weaponised robot-cat, and the Great Stumphosse Resident Melting Pot boils out ethnic heritage. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Stumphosse Res's national animal is the Emu, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Secularism.

Stumphosse Res is ranked 251,022nd in the world and 1,073rd in Europe for Most Patriotic, with 1.09 flags saluted per person per day.
