Determined Nation

Population871 million



The Holy Empire of Determined Nation is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by Billy with an even hand, and notable for its keen interest in outer space, zero percent divorce rate, and restrictive gun laws. The compassionate, devout population of 871 million Determined Nationians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Utica. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 76.3%.

The frighteningly efficient Determined Nationian economy, worth 89.4 trillion dollars a year, is led by the Trout Farming industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 102,592 dollars, with the richest citizens earning 9.1 times as much as the poorest.

Recent events have left citizens both shaken and stirred, hordes of unemployed lumberjacks have resorted to cutting down utility poles to satisfy their cravings, to 'cut off family ties' is no longer just a phrase, and corporations have to consult a fifty-page "sanctions spreadsheet" to determine which countries they are allowed to do business with. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Determined Nation's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Determined Nation is ranked 151,733rd in the world and 6,349th in The North Pacific for Least Corrupt Governments, with 92.62 Percentage Of Bribes Refused.
