The Pumice Islands

The Dominion of The Pumice Islands is a tiny, safe nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape and compulsory military service. The hard-working, democratic, devout population of 12 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 tiny, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Spirituality, with Welfare, Defense, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Environment and Industry receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.0%.

The strong Pumice Islander economy, worth 706 billion Cereskian Pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Basket Weaving industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Woodchip Exports, and Pizza Delivery. Average income is 58,862 Cereskian Pounds, with the richest citizens earning 6.2 times as much as the poorest.

Air purifiers fight smoke machines on Pumice Islander stage setups, the tenet of free speech is held dear, Harry Potter books are banned, and euthanasia is illegal. Crime, especially youth-related, is relatively low. The Pumice Islands's national animal is the Peregrine Falcon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

The Pumice Islands is ranked 153,504th in the world and 5,820th in the South Pacific for Lowest Crime Rates, with 58.04 law-abiding acts per hour.
