Overview Factbook People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Republic of The Republic of Pluck is a huge, cultured nation, ruled by William Wilberforce with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, frequent executions, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 832 million Republic of Pluckians 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 medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 34.6%.

The very strong Republic of Pluckian economy, worth 70.5 trillion Danubes a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 84,690 Danubes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 257,925 per year while the poor average 21,582, a ratio of 12.0 to 1.

Vaccinations are mandatory, radio shows frequently feature people denouncing religion, nobody is allowed to stop the local daycare from reading Nietzsche to pre-schoolers, and government officials sit helplessly as they are labelled 'Pompous Womples' by celebrities. Crime is totally unknown. The Republic of Pluck's national animal is the Monster, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Republic of Pluck is ranked 15,262nd in the world and 57th in Renegade Islands Alliance for Most Compassionate Citizens, scoring 54.17 on the Kitten Softness Rating.
