The Pleiads

Population163 million


The Federation of The Pleiads is a very large, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its national health service, frequent executions, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 163 million Pleiadsians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Healthcare, Education, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 60.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Pleiadsian economy, worth 8.37 trillion Royals a year, is quite specialized and led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 51,319 Royals, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

The navy plans patrols according to how many pubs nearby ports have, any body part that can be cut off a person is no longer considered to be their property, CEOs are forced to cut coupons during important conference calls to make ends meet, and it is considered unpatriotic to learn a foreign language. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Pleiads's national animal is the Scylla, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Pleiads is ranked 178,003rd in the world and 8,866th in The North Pacific for Safest, scoring 36.48 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
