The Glorious Upper Peninsula

Population2.049 billion


The Free Land of The Glorious Upper Peninsula is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, cynical population of 2.049 billion Glorious Upper Peninsulans are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Law & Order, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 74.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Glorious Upper Peninsulan economy, worth 19.2 trillion Dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 9,393 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

It is illegal to make racist remarks in public. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Glorious Upper Peninsula's national animal is the Wolverine, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Glorious Upper Peninsula is ranked 270,778th in the world and 138th in The League of Conservative Voices for Highest Food Quality, scoring 7.2 on the Meeshlin-Starr Index.
