Free Culture

Population16.91 billion


The Empire of Free Culture is a gargantuan, efficient nation, remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, keen interest in outer space, and absence of drug laws. The hard-nosed, cheerful population of 16.91 billion Free Cultureans 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 tiny government is primarily concerned with Education, with Industry, Healthcare, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. The average income tax rate is 17.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Free Culturean economy, worth a remarkable 4,165 trillion denaris a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 246,304 denaris, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Free Cultureans refer to transgender people with insults instead of pronouns, the sound of office water cooler chatter has been replaced by the whirring of computer cooling fans, the regional delicacy of chocolate bombes is deadlier than an unexploded bomb, and end-of-year production reports state that the revolution is really going with a bang. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Free Culture's national animal is the dragon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Free Culture is ranked 85,457th in the world and 3,712th in The North Pacific for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring 1,541.84 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
