Chess Republic

Population420 million


The Democratic Republic of Chess Republic is a huge, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, frequent executions, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 420 million Chess Republicians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The tiny government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 9.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Chess Republician economy, worth 15.4 trillion bitcoins a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Retail, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Uranium Mining. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 36,669 bitcoins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Noises louder than a whisper have been prohibited by law, bouncers at the door of the sweet shop warn five-year-olds not to cause trouble, there's no representation without taxation, and the government has cut its subsidies for all special interest groups. Crime is almost non-existent. Chess Republic's national animal is the lion, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Chess Republic is ranked 54,167th in the world and 2,725th in The North Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 93.81 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
