Tierra de Platanos

Population419 million


AnimalFruit Bat

The Commonwealth of Tierra de Platanos is a huge, cultured nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 419 million platanoes hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large government prioritizes Education, although Defense, Administration, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Amarillo. The average income tax rate is 62.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Platanosian economy, worth 26.0 trillion Oroes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Information Technology, Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Arms Manufacturing. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 62,040 Oroes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Artists from across the nation compete to renovate the restrooms of old government buildings, programmes of questionable content are shown at peak-hours, hospitals have poor data security but send lots of bodies to be encrypted, and years of counter-terrorism planning are foiled by small details. Crime is totally unknown. Tierra de Platanos's national animal is the Fruit Bat, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Tierra de Platanos is ranked 98,547th in the world and 762nd in 10000 Islands for Lowest Crime Rates, with 63.35 Law-abiding Acts Per Hour.
