Regional Influence: Squire

Location: the South Pacific



Population8.702 billion



The Republic of FreeFishers is a colossal, cultured nation, notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.702 billion FreeFisherFolks enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Environment, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Salmobright. The average income tax rate is 92.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming FreeFishersian economy, worth a remarkable 1,003 trillion marks a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Information Technology and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 115,328 marks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Saying "don't do anything that Leader wouldn't do" doesn't exclude a great deal, consuming ecstasy is a common rite of passage, 'Police Academy 36' and 'Sharknados On A Plane' are vying for top spot at the box-office, and police officers spend more time on calisthenics than actually catching criminals. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. FreeFishers's national animal is the salmon, which frolics freely in the nation's sparkling oceans.

FreeFishers is ranked 8,151st in the world and 225th in the South Pacific for Highest Foreign Aid Spending, scoring 2,088.68 on the Clooney Contribution Index.
