Free Las Pinas III

Population549 million

CurrencyPhilippine Peso

The Most Serene Republic of Free Las Pinas III is a huge, safe nation, notable for its infamous sell-swords, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed population of 549 million Las Pineroes are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass — juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 74.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Free Las Pinas IIIian economy, worth 16.6 trillion Philippine Pesos a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining and Retail. Average income is 30,163 Philippine Pesos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's once beautiful countryside has turned brown as farmers spray potent pesticides, people often get liposuction to reduce their air fares, Free Las Pinas III recently decided against having a capital city, and the nation's Medal of Honour can be found as a free toy in breakfast cereal. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Free Las Pinas III's national animal is the Unicorn.

Free Las Pinas III is ranked 77,486th in the world and 48th in Shinka for Most Influential, scoring 214 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
