The Selkie Queendom

Population1.032 billion

CapitalSelkie city


The United States of The Selkie Queendom is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Sealshift with an even hand, and renowned for its public floggings, daily referendums, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, hard-working, devout population of 1.032 billion Selkies have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Spirituality, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Selkie city. The average income tax rate is 35.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Queendomian economy, worth 57.5 trillion Fish a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Soda Sales, Gambling, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 55,760 Fish, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Hordes of unemployed lumberjacks have resorted to cutting down utility poles to satisfy their cravings, election ballot papers are so long that unused ones are recycled as toilet roll, The Very Hungry Caterpillar has been banned for advocating gluttony, and Sealshift has just been declared ruler of The Selkie Queendom in an international press conference. Crime is totally unknown. The Selkie Queendom's national animal is the Seal, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

The Selkie Queendom is ranked 90,287th in the world and 16th in Wealth for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 48.07 on the Hayek Index.
