The Free Land of RustyNails
“Lick it, good”
|Category: New York Times Democracy|
Location: the Rejected Realms
Regional Influence: Minnow
The Free Land of RustyNails is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, ubiquitous missile silos, and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic population of 2.411 billion RustyNailsians 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 large government prioritizes Education, although Healthcare, Defense, and Industry are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 43.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The strong RustyNailsian economy, worth 125 trillion dollars a year, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 52,056 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.
Farting etiquette is taught in schools, UFO sightings are listed daily in the morning news, international tensions are high as RustyNails threatens any government with the audacity to arrest its citizens, and the government recently relinquished its monopoly on the mail service. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. RustyNails's national animal is the Unicorn, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
