Tierra Fuego

Population2.892 billion


AnimalAndean Condor

The Democratic Republic of Tierra Fuego is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, daily referendums, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless population of 2.892 billion Fuegians 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Environment, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Ushuaia. The average income tax rate is 51.7%.

The all-consuming Fuegoan economy, worth 235 trillion pesos 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 large, well-organized, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Tourism, Retail, and Basket Weaving. 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 81,361 pesos, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.4 times as much as the poorest.

You gots to be part of the Party to get in to the party, train stations have more platforms than a 1970s disco, gun ownership is compulsory, and citizens may cast their vote by mail or phone. Crime is moderate, perhaps because of the country's complete lack of prisons. Tierra Fuego's national animal is the Andean Condor, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Tierra Fuego is ranked 207,456th in the world and 171st in The Western Isles for Largest Trout Fishing Sector, scoring -10.12 on the Nemo Depletion Efficiency Index.
