3446 Blossoms

Population914 million


The Republic of 3446 Blossoms is a huge, socially progressive nation, renowned for its irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 914 million 3446 Blossomsians 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 tiny, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Administration. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.1%.

The strong 3446 Blossomsian economy, worth 50.6 trillion flowers a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Furniture Restoration, Arms Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. Average income is 55,361 flowers, with the richest citizens earning 6.1 times as much as the poorest.

Biker gangs and fashionistas are converting to Violetism en masse, Tetris has been banned for its graphic violent content, politicians stage photo ops featuring barely functional fighter jets, and lending money has become a major liability. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. 3446 Blossoms's national animal is the cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

3446 Blossoms is ranked 38,458th in the world and 549th in The City of Ba Sing Se for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring 103.54 on the Hayek Index.
