The Upper Low

Population191 million

The Free Land of The Upper Low is a very large, efficient nation, remarkable for its museums and concert halls, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 191 million Upper Lowians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 58.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Upper Lowian economy, worth 14.0 trillion bitcoins a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 73,544 bitcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Vast amounts of energy are expended moving water to hilltop lakes, the "Underwear of Women in Power" issue of The The Upper Low City Times is sold out, the nation's diplomats shake hands with those whose hands are drenched in the blood of innocents, and flu research is commonly shut down for fear of creating a superbug. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Upper Low's national animal is the dead dolphin, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

The Upper Low is ranked 6,415th in the world and 207th in The East Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 94.85 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
