The Hilltops

The Nomadic Peoples of The Hilltops is a large, socially progressive nation, renowned for its irreverence towards religion and absence of drug laws. The democratic population of 62 million Hilltopsians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 26.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Hilltopsian economy, worth 2.08 trillion Euros a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Cheese Exports, and Soda Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 33,496 Euros, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Goldfish bowls are three metres in diameter, the mining industry is making inroads into environmentally sensitive areas, the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller, and organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region. Crime is almost non-existent. The Hilltops's national animal is the Eagle, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

The Hilltops is ranked 69,678th in the world and 211th in Refugia for Most Income Equality, scoring 51.28 on the Marx-Engels Emancipation Scale.
