Location: The Western Isles

Regional Influence: Shoeshiner


The Republic of Plungaria is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by President Maria Rivera with an even hand, and notable for its avant-garde cinema, free-roaming dinosaurs, and pith helmet sales. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.33 billion Plungarians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Animalia. The average income tax rate is 79.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Plungarian economy, worth 608 trillion Plungarian Pesos a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Basket Weaving, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 114,119 Plungarian Pesos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Political speeches that drill deep into bureaucratic fine detail could be said to be a little boring, secret police deal with secret crimes, hospitals fear government fines more than terrorist ransoms, and the new national campaign exhorts men to "Show Some Class - Don't Sit On Your Ass". Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Plungaria's national animal is the Plungarian Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Christianity.

Plungaria is ranked 14,123rd in the world and 47th in The Western Isles for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 9,064.1 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
