The Rogue Nation of Platform 1
“Free Trade, Free Markets, and Free People”
Location: The Free Nations Region
Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
The Rogue Nation of Platform 1 is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its complete lack of public education, absence of drug laws, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 230 million Platform 1ians live in a state of perpetual fear, as a complete breakdown of social order has led to the rise of order through biker gangs.
The minute, liberal, pro-business, outspoken government, or what there is of one, is solely concerned with Defense. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.0%.
The strong Platform 1ian economy, worth 14.4 trillion Dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery, Woodchip Exports, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 62,458 Dollars, but there is an enormous disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 383,546 per year while the poor average 4,447, a ratio of 86.2 to 1.
The nation's biggest export is stupidity, sushi just hasn't been the same since salmon went extinct overnight, former customs officers are adjusting to their new lives as market stall traders, and it can be a real jungle in a modern courtroom. Crime is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Platform 1's national animal is the the wild Afghani, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
