The Realist Polities

The Sovereign State of The Realist Polities is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by the Strategic Council with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and unlimited-speed roads. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, humorless population of 24.97 billion Realists 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, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Huijing. The average income tax rate is 5.8%.

The frighteningly efficient Realist Politiesian economy, worth a remarkable 5,691 trillion Mets a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Cheese Exports. Average income is an amazing 227,939 Mets, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

Bars are packed at all hours, violently opinionated speakers can be heard preaching their hateful views on every street corner, the government is pouring money into 'Operation Enduring Democracy', and the country has been 'going shopping' by annexing nearby nations for their resources. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. The Realist Polities's national animal is the vulture, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Utilitarian Shinto.

The Realist Polities is ranked 27,572nd in the world and 9th in Coalition of Sovereign Nations for Most Inclusive, scoring 123.24 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
