Regional Influence: Shoeshiner


The Republic of Rachel Tice is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, enforced nudity, and punitive income tax rates. The quiet, industrious population of 12.195 billion Rachel Ticeans 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 government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Spirituality, Environment, and Social Policy. The average income tax rate is 76.5%.

The Rachel Ticean economy, worth 548 trillion dollars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, highly specialized black market in Gambling, Basket Weaving, Information Technology, and Pizza Delivery. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 44,972 dollars, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.6 times as much as the poorest.

The government awards prizes to television shows featuring stereotype-breaking minority roles, military funding has been stripped back, organ donation rates are among the lowest in the region, and meat-eating is frowned upon. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Rachel Tice's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Rachel Tice is ranked 119,864th in the world and 6th in Topid for Most Developed, scoring 55.04 on the Human Development Index.
