Free Culture

Population16.425 billion


The Empire of Free Culture is a gargantuan, safe nation, remarkable for its digital currency, anti-smoking policies, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-nosed, cheerful population of 16.425 billion Free Cultureans enjoy extensive civil freedoms, particularly in social issues, while business tends to be more regulated.

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 13.2%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Free Culturean economy, worth a remarkable 4,073 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 broadly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Book Publishing. Average income is an amazing 248,021 denaris, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Tourists are flocking to the newly-built MeteorLand family resort, Free Culture is notorious for its citizens' infidelity, tourists on boat cruises can't figure out why they smell so fishy afterward, and blind students are at a disadvantage now that test papers printed in braille have been discontinued. 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 86,899th in the world and 4,088th in The North Pacific for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 1,441.99 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
