Ask For Directions

Population1.723 billion


The United States of Ask For Directions is a massive, genial nation, remarkable for its frequent executions, public floggings, and parental licensing program. The hard-working, democratic population of 1.723 billion Ask For Directionsians 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 juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Education. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 39.1%.

The powerhouse Ask For Directionsian economy, worth 73.3 trillion lire a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming, Furniture Restoration, and Tourism. Black market activity is notable. Average income is 42,545 lire, with the richest citizens earning 5.7 times as much as the poorest.

School teachers check the staff room for hidden webcams before complaining about rebellious students, war criminals are given full state funerals, frequent fliers are obliged to submit to invasive security procedures by government security, and every workday begins with group therapy. Crime, especially youth-related, is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ask For Directions's national animal is the horse, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ask For Directions is ranked 42,762nd in the world and 330th in Artificial Solar System for Most Developed, scoring 68.31 on the Human Development Index.
