The Mighty River

Population332 million

CurrencyRiver Bucks

The United Socialist States of The Mighty River is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its free-roaming dinosaurs, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate population of 332 million Mighty Riverians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 70.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Mighty Riverian economy, worth 9.54 trillion River Bucks a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Trout Farming, Tourism, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 28,723 River Bucks, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Toddlers are wielding machine guns in the name of national defense, citizens are yearning to leave The Mighty River for the countries it sends aid to, the mood of raunchy movies is often ruined by the sound of babies crying, and murder rates are on the rise as the popularity of soylent products grows. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Mighty River's national animal is the Catfish, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

The Mighty River is ranked 59,289th in the world and 342nd in The Internationale for Lowest Crime Rates, with 67.72 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
