Location: the South Pacific



Population8.227 billion



The Republic of FreeFishers is a colossal, genial nation, remarkable for its keen interest in outer space, anti-smoking policies, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic population of 8.227 billion FreeFisherFolks love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

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 92.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming FreeFishersian economy, worth 964 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 117,212 marks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

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 142,585th in the world and 5,274th in the South Pacific for Most Pro-Market, scoring 32.22 on the Rand Index.
