The Democratic Republic of Congress

Population242 million


The Rogue Nation of The Democratic Republic of Congress is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, ubiquitous missile silos, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 242 million Democratic Republic of Congressians 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 20.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Democratic Republic of Congressian economy, worth 14.4 trillion mukibuks a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Book Publishing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 59,469 mukibuks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Local executives are seen on the corner with cardboard signs reading "will oppress the masses for food", former arms manufacturing CEOs are now delivering food for minimum wage, couples are discouraged from marrying until they can rank their partner on a scale of one to ten, and Loud Patriotic Music Day has been ranked the seventh best new holiday of the year. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Democratic Republic of Congress's national animal is the mukimon, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Democratic Republic of Congress is ranked 164,588th in the world and 27th in Lily for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring 1,928.57 on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
