The 1st Hurricane

Population960 million


The Nation of The 1st Hurricane is a huge, pleasant nation, notable for its parental licensing program, frequent executions, and complete lack of prisons. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 960 million 1st Hurricaneans 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 31.0%.

The 1st Hurricanean economy, worth 47.6 trillion dollars a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Soda Sales industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Tourism. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 49,539 dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 197,716 per year while the poor average 8,349, a ratio of 23.7 to 1.

The Federal Council of The 1st Hurricane has been announced as the new Head of State, commercial jingles have been ham-handedly forced into world renowned symphonies, crossword puzzles have been co-opted as a symbol of racial discrimination, and residents of ageing concrete tower blocks have vital renovation work stopped by Brutalism enthusiasts. Crime is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. The 1st Hurricane's national animal is the 55850.

The 1st Hurricane is ranked 189,324th in the world and 11th in The Great Universe for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 151.35 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
