The Democratic Republic of Tachycardia
“First World Problems, Third World Charm”
|Category: New York Times Democracy|
Location: The North Pacific
Regional Influence: Shoeshiner
The Democratic Republic of Tachycardia is a huge, safe nation, notable for its daily referendums, free-roaming dinosaurs, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate, democratic population of 497 million Tachycardians 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 government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Denial. The average income tax rate is 30.3%, but much higher for the wealthy.
The Tachycardian economy, worth 24.9 trillion Coronaries a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Cheese Exports, Information Technology, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 50,077 Coronaries, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.
The importance of winning Olympic gold medals is indoctrinated from an early age, people who have had childhood imaginary friends are told they can't ever be trusted with guns, politicians tend to jump ship to whichever party is currently leading in the polls, and destitute athletes are forced to train in the street. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Tachycardia's national animal is the Wooly Sycophant, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.
