Democratic Parndia

Population2.282 billion


The United States of Democratic Parndia is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its flagrant waste-dumping, smutty television, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.282 billion Democratic Parndians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The relatively small, corrupt, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Defense, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 10.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Democratic Parndian economy, worth 560 trillion dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Automobile Manufacturing. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an amazing 245,639 dollars, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 1,179,421 per year while the poor average 29,873, a ratio of 39.5 to 1.

Gossip magazines are more interested in astrological stars than celebrity ones, directors of low-budget sci-fi films are flocking to use Democratic Parndia City as a backdrop, election debates consists mostly of two grey suits arguing over how to best preserve the status quo, and candidates celebrate "free speech" by spraying champagne all over anyone who shows up to a rally. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Democratic Parndia's national animal is the bison, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Democratic Parndia is ranked 29,594th in the world and 874th in the South Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 67.26 on the Human Development Index.
