The Concert

The Republic of The Concert is a massive, cultured nation, notable for its fear of technology, compulsory military service, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 1.445 billion Concertians are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The large, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 43.1%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Concertian economy, worth 69.8 trillion pounds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 48,275 pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

A few people seem to spend their whole time complaining, people experiencing anaphylactic shock are told to buck their ideas up, The Concert City has restaurants serving every meat from aardvark to zebra, and citizens who leave the country are officially classed as traitors. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Concert's national animal is the tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Concert is ranked 223,074th in the world and 577th in NationStates Museum of Art for Best Weather, with 89 meters of sunlight.
