OverviewPoliciesPeopleGovernmentEconomyRankTrendCards

The Federal Republic of Equatannia is a huge, genial nation, renowned for its irreverence towards religion, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 488 million Equatannians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 67.9%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Equatannian economy, worth 16.5 trillion Equos a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 33,801 Equos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Meat-eating is frowned upon, solid-gold toilets are Equatannian prisons' least expensive furnishings, welfare funding has recently gone through the roof, and Occam's razor has sliced to pieces any childhood belief in Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Equatannia's national animal is the Swan, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Equatannia is ranked 25,592nd in the world and 781st in The East Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 2,846.59 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
