The Greater Antilles

Population2.074 billion

LeaderJuan Palmer

CurrencyWest Indian Pound

The Federation of The Greater Antilles is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Juan Palmer with an even hand, and remarkable for its rampant corporate plagiarism, devotion to social welfare, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, cynical, devout population of 2.074 billion Greater Antilleans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kingston. The average income tax rate is 83.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Greater Antillean economy, worth 178 trillion West Indian Pounds a year, is quite specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Furniture Restoration, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 86,248 West Indian Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's poor can be seen scavenging trash bins for used coffee grounds, the government has certified several glow-in-the-dark athletes as drug free, NationStates is now a popular brand of laxatives despite Max Barry's protests, and the legislature keeps promising "more study" of corruption allegations against the parliamentary whip system. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Greater Antilles's national animal is the Armadillo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

The Greater Antilles is ranked 10,313th in the world and 7th in The Kodiak Republic for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 60.3 Whatever.
