The Empire of Goblin 228
|Category: Capitalist Paradise|
Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
The Empire of Goblin 228 is a huge, efficient nation, notable for its compulsory military service, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 608 million Goblin 228ians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.
The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, although Healthcare, Law & Order, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 5.1%.
The thriving Goblin 228ian economy, worth 43.0 trillion florins a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Pizza Delivery industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Soda Sales, and Gambling. Average income is 70,754 florins, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 250,447 per year while the poor average 14,432, a ratio of 17.4 to 1.
Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Goblin 228's national animal is the unicorn, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.
