Enyo 51

Population4.16 billion


The Republic of Enyo 51 is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its enslaved workforce, state-planned economy, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed population of 4.16 billion Enyo 51ians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Law & Order. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 54.7%.

The very strong Enyo 51ian economy, worth 267 trillion salts a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Tourism, Uranium Mining, Automobile Manufacturing, and Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 64,278 salts, with the richest citizens earning 5.4 times as much as the poorest.

Collisions between bicycles and carnival floats are on the rise, polygraphs are relegated to the dungeon exhibit in castle museums, Enyo 51 successfully hosted the Lazarus Olympics, and serial killers who are released early distribute death but not their seed. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Enyo 51's national animal is the llama.

Enyo 51 is ranked 270,599th in the world and 11,650th in Lazarus for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -8.02 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
