Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of The Republic of The Intergalactic Republic of Space is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Cosmic Officer Number Fifty-Seven with an even hand, and remarkable for its anti-smoking policies, keen interest in outer space, and ban on automobiles. The compassionate population of 4.905 billion The Intergalactic Republic of Spaceans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Social Policy, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of the observable universe. The average income tax rate is 89.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Intergalactic Republic of Spacean economy, worth 249 trillion Space Bars a year, is extremely specialized and mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 50,940 Space Bars, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The state believes that nature-oriented summer camps will somehow solve youth crime, the nation faces constant invasions by foreign boy bands, veteran cops reminisce over their heavy armor days, and Cosmic Officer Number Fifty-Seven lives life on the open road - complete with groupies. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Intergalactic Republic of Space's national animal is the Seemingly Intangible Creature of Empty, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is a really cool religion.

The Intergalactic Republic of Space is ranked 125,052nd in the world and 50th in SPACE for Most Efficient Economies, scoring 35.26 on the Krugman-Greenspan Business Outlook Index.
