Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Free Land of Tierra de Madre is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Mandela with an even hand, and notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, anti-smoking policies, and hatred of cheese. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 14.617 billion Tierrabytes enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Dar es Salaam. The average income tax rate is 94.4%.

The large but inefficient Tierrabyte economy, worth 783 trillion Pebbles a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. Average income is 53,595 Pebbles, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Beaches are empty as the shark population multiplies exponentially, fake designer clothes are shredded and burnt while many in the world don't have a shirt on their back, the Tierrabyte Intelligence Agency relies on internet search engines to know what is happening overseas, and 'The Anti-Government Hour' is a popular programme on many of Tierra de Madre's radio stations. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tierra de Madre's national animal is the Sauropod, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Tierra de Madre is ranked 1,838th in the world and 5th in Renegade Islands Alliance for Safest, scoring 141.57 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
