The Anti-Solar System Scope

Population23 million

CurrencyAnti-Solar System

The Kingdom of The Anti-Solar System Scope is a small, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its burgeoning Anti-Planet population. The quiet, industrious population of 23 million Anti-Astrofolks 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 Welfare, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 20.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Anti-Astrofolk economy, worth 955 billion Anti-Solar Systems a year, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Basket Weaving, Book Publishing, and Tourism. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 41,531 Anti-Solar Systems, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

Tourists from around the world come to visit the country's famous rainforests, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, it is illegal to make racist remarks in public, and kids are arrested at gunpoint for playing with toy rifles. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Anti-Solar System Scope's national animal is the Anti-Planet, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Anti-Solar System Scope is ranked 58,903rd in the world and 2,149th in the South Pacific for Most Cultured, scoring 68 on the Snufflebottom-Wiggendum Pentatonic Scale.
