Regional Influence: Shoeshiner


The Free Land of Far out is a huge, socially progressive nation, ruled by the Council of random common people with a fair hand, and renowned for its smutty television, keen interest in outer space, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 937 million Far outians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Center of Far out. The average income tax rate is 77.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse Far outian economy, worth 81.5 trillion blurps a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Trout Farming, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 86,970 blurps, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

The latest national park is visited by more sharks than people, the government has stated an intention to min-max its stats for 'teh pwnage', citizens can be frequently spotted going about their business stark naked, and foreign investment has dropped to a trickle after laws were passed preventing investors from taking their earnings abroad. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Far out's national animal is the human, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Far out is ranked 120,501st in the world and 27th in The Internationale for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 904.33 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
