The Discordian Republic

Population67 million

The Constitutional Monarchy of The Discordian Republic is a large, socially progressive nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, parental licensing program, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 67 million Discordian Republicians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.4%.

The powerhouse Discordian Republician economy, worth 5.85 trillion Discordollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Woodchip Exports, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 87,311 Discordollars, with the richest citizens earning 6.2 times as much as the poorest.

Shivering secretaries type letters under torrential downpours in open-roof offices, the Supreme Court vehemently protects civil rights and the right to privacy, travelers are subject to extensive searches if beet stains are visible on their clothing, and families waiting for delayed pipe installations hope daily for rain. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Discordian Republic's national animal is the Discordian Breeie Bird, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

The Discordian Republic is ranked 173,387th in the world and 149th in The Western Isles for Largest Soda Pop Sector, scoring 67.15 on the Addison-Fukk Productivity Rating.
