The Republic of The Republic of Pluck is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by William Wilberforce with a fair hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, complete lack of prisons, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 2.122 billion 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 48.1%.

The very strong Republic of Pluckian economy, worth 171 trillion Danubes a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 80,593 Danubes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 228,461 per year while the poor average 22,721, a ratio of 10.1 to 1.

Five-year-olds chanting "Little Miss Muffet" are accused of bullying arachnophobes, it ain't easy to be green enough to be imported into The Republic of Pluck, doctors prescribe medicines but they rarely dispense hope or compassion, and the richest individuals apparently buy nothing but noodles and toilet paper. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 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 131,911th in the world and 72nd in Renegade Islands Alliance for Largest Insurance Industry, scoring -3.95 on the Risk Expulsion Effectiveness Rating.
