The Crest of Fire

Population112 million


The Republic of The Crest of Fire is a very large, orderly nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service and irreverence towards religion. The cynical population of 112 million Crest of Fireans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The large, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 43.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Crest of Firean economy, worth 4.13 trillion Marks a year, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Basket Weaving, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 36,836 Marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

People who have lived their entire lives in The Crest of Fire are shocked to discover that they are not citizens, even religious militants can be swayed by the power of #love, homophobia is off the menu, and engineers ask liberal arts majors "Do you want fries with that?". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Crest of Fire's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

The Crest of Fire is ranked 18,243rd in the world and 1st in The Axis of Evil for Most Pacifist, with 115.18 Cheeks Turned Per Day.
