The Entropy

Population3.369 billion


The Jingoistic States of The Entropy is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed population of 3.369 billion Entropyians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The medium-sized, liberal, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 39.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Entropyian economy, worth 66.3 trillion hugs 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 Tourism, Uranium Mining, Book Publishing, and Furniture Restoration. 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 19,682 hugs, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government decides its policies by observing the flight of birds, the government keeps introducing new foreign species to combat the previous ones it has introduced, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, and murder rates are on the rise as the popularity of soylent products grows. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Entropy's national animal is the llama.

The Entropy is ranked 233,862nd in the world and 7,866th in the South Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 42.84 on the Human Development Index.
