The Second Iberian Peninsula

The United Socialist States of The Second Iberian Peninsula is a small, safe nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, daily referendums, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 26 million Second Iberian Peninsulans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 67.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The basket case Second Iberian Peninsulan economy, worth 284 billion 2nd Iberian Kronor a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Book Publishing, and Tourism. Average income is 10,952 2nd Iberian Kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Former stunt pilots are unable to pass the licence test to fly a drone, popular cartoon characters frequently appear in government-sponsored PSAs reminding students to say no to drugs, euthanasia is legal, and it is a crime to operate a combine harvester while intoxicated. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Second Iberian Peninsula's national animal is the hummingbird, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

The Second Iberian Peninsula is ranked 102,835th in the world and 37th in Refugia for Most Armed, with 0.29 Weapons Per Person.
