The Ivory Tower of Academia

Population6.814 billion

The Faculty of The Ivory Tower of Academia is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Professor with a fair hand, and notable for its daily referendums, ban on automobiles, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 6.814 billion Academics hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Industry, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of UniverCity. The average income tax rate is 56.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Academic economy, worth 834 trillion Theses a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 122,406 Theses, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Brancaland has gifted over nine thousand putrid moose carcasses to The Ivory Tower of Academia as a reminder of their "special relationship", unpopular cops are fired at a moment's notice by the citizens they police, older citizens lament over the loss of law and order, and patriotic citizens simply tend to applaud rather than sing the nation's praises. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Ivory Tower of Academia's national animal is the PhD student, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Ivory Tower of Academia is ranked 21,327th in the world and 285th in Europe for Highest Average Incomes, with 122,406.54 Standard Monetary Units.
