The Pumice Islands

The Dominion of The Pumice Islands is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, daily referendums, and compulsory vegetarianism. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 270 million Pumice Islanders 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 relatively small, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Defense, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 13.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Pumice Islander economy, worth 13.9 trillion Cereskian Pounds a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Woodchip Exports, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 51,536 Cereskian Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Most believe 'tis better to give than to receive, buses are widely regarded as the safest way to travel, the RXN information hour is a guaranteed cure for insomnia, and sex changes are routinely performed at The Pumice Islands's hospitals. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent. The Pumice Islands's national animal is the Peregrine Falcon, which can occasionally be seen dodging aircraft in the nation's cities.

The Pumice Islands is ranked 101,877th in the world and 10th in Sub Pacific for Safest, scoring 80.43 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
