The Dissociative State of Hardscrabble
“Where everyone goes home with a free mattress!”
|Category: Civil Rights Lovefest|
Location: The North Pacific
Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
The Dissociative State of Hardscrabble is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by Dr Norvak Dolokai with a fair hand, and renowned for its daily referendums, keen interest in outer space, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic, cheerful population of 9.198 billion Hardscrabblers hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.
The large, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Environment, Administration, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Defense and Spirituality receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Squash Flats. The average income tax rate is 96.5%.
The frighteningly efficient Hardscrabblean economy, worth a remarkable 1,610 trillion florgons a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 175,102 florgons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.
Voting for pro-Bigtopian candidates is voluntary, disaster relief budgets are growing like wildfire, therapists can always squeeze in another house-call, and crime is on the rise as online youths compete to vlog the most shocking scenes of violence. Crime is totally unknown. Hardscrabble's national animal is the wood shrew, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
