Talamh Cernunnos

Population1.533 billion

The Free Land of Talamh Cernunnos is a massive, safe nation, notable for its infamous sell-swords, keen interest in outer space, and daily referendums. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 1.533 billion Cernunnosians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Welfare, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Máirín. The average income tax rate is 72.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Cernunnosian economy, worth 74.8 trillion punts a year, is quite specialized and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 48,783 punts, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Primetime re-runs of The Black and White Minstrel Show are a critical hit, meat-eating is frowned upon, a widely accepted trade policy is "tit-for-tat", and welfare funding has recently gone through the roof. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Talamh Cernunnos's national animal is the hermit crab, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

Talamh Cernunnos is ranked 61,413th in the world and 3,078th in Balder for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 102.98 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
