Sybaritic Socialists

Population26.395 billion

LeaderAll Smuggest


The Democratic Republic of Sybaritic Socialists is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by All Smuggest with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, democratic, cheerful population of 26.395 billion Sybaritic Socialistsians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small, outspoken government is dominated by the Department of Education, although Healthcare is also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kippenheim. The average income tax rate is 6.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Sybaritic Socialistsian economy, worth a remarkable 5,513 trillion mebbes a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Retail, and Soda Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 208,872 mebbes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The fire protection service is wholly government-funded, teenagers performing appendectomies on their friends has become a popular schoolyard prank, Ollie the Oiled Seal welcomes throngs of tourists to the newly opened Oil Oasis Water Park, and the Sybaritic Socialistsian Arts Council pays teenagers to sit through opera performances. Crime is totally unknown. Sybaritic Socialists's national animal is the lurcher, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Sybaritic Socialists is ranked 293rd in the world and 6th in Europe for Smartest Citizens, with 272.55 Quips Per Hour.
