The Kingdom of Pavlikstan
“Strength Through Freedom”
|Category: New York Times Democracy|
Location: The North Pacific
Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
The Kingdom of Pavlikstan is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by First Consul Pavlik with a fair hand, and renowned for its deadly medical pandemics, parental licensing program, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, devout population of 5.395 billion Pavlikstanians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Funland. The average income tax rate is 54.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.
The frighteningly efficient Pavlikstanian economy, worth 873 trillion dollars a year, is dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, and Retail. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an impressive 161,967 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.
Orthopaedics patients often have a bounce in their step, expats return home to a government devoid of social and environmental agencies, the nation's industries are scrambling to switch to biodegradable plastics, and out-of-work soldiers and bureaucrats can often be found camped out in front of manservant academies. Crime is totally unknown. Pavlikstan's national animal is the beaver, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.
