Free Culture

Population14.541 billion


The Empire of Free Culture is a gargantuan, efficient nation, notable for its vat-grown people, multi-spousal wedding ceremonies, and strictly enforced bedtime. The hard-nosed, cheerful population of 14.541 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 dominated by the Department of Education, with Industry, Healthcare, and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 7.6%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Free Culturean economy, worth a remarkable 3,504 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 241,017 denaris, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

Every week is blindness awareness week, hidden bedroom-cams are installed to catch mothers doing their kids' homework, it is mandatory to learn evolution in schools, and nature magazines featuring stick insects on their covers are sometimes mistaken for fashion magazines. Crime 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 4,673rd in the world and 283rd in The North Pacific for Longest Average Lifespans, with 90.75 Years.
