The CRS Adequate

Population3.979 billion

The Refugi Flagship of The CRS Adequate is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Lucabaduka with an even hand, and renowned for its keen interest in outer space, daily referendums, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed population of 3.979 billion Refugi are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government prioritizes Administration, with Healthcare, Education, and Law & Order also on the agenda. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the Bridge. The average income tax rate is 52.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped battle-ready economy, worth 139 trillion planets a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Retail, Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Woodchip Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 35,166 planets, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Veterans are directed into environmental cleanup operations, smoking is banned in public areas, the government regularly reassures citizens that there are no monsters under their beds, and schoolyard sandboxes resemble ashtrays due to the large number of cigarette butts. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The CRS Adequate's national animal is the simplebot, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Defenderism.

The CRS Adequate is ranked 44,126th in the world and 1,696th in the Rejected Realms for Most Patriotic, with 21.47 flags saluted per person per day.
