California but Worse

Population1.196 billion

LeaderChad Giovanni


The Before it was Cool States of California but Worse is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Chad Giovanni with an even hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, keen interest in outer space, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate population of 1.196 billion ePeoples are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, socially-minded government is primarily concerned with Education, although Environment, Industry, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality isn't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of OwmyBacramento. The average income tax rate is 66.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The powerhouse California but Worsean economy, worth 102 trillion Bitcoins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Basket Weaving. Average income is 85,827 Bitcoins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government pours millions of Bitcoins into rehabilitation programs annually, government officials frequently cut taxes as a distraction from antics with their secretaries, invasive drug testing is now performed at elementary school sports days, and the government is avowedly secular. Crime is totally unknown. California but Worse's national animal is the Platypus, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans, and its national religion is Scientology.

California but Worse is ranked 130,317th in the world and 6,570th in The North Pacific for Most Devout, with 8.34 Prayers Per Hour.
