Grand Intergalactic Republic

Population605 million

AnimalGlorious Weeflebub

The Republic of Grand Intergalactic Republic is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its otherworldly petting zoo, rampant corporate plagiarism, and keen interest in outer space. The compassionate, democratic population of 605 million Grand Intergalactic Republicians enjoy extensive civil rights and enjoy a level of social equality free from the usual accompanying government corruption.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Administration, Education, and Healthcare. The average income tax rate is 89.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Grand Intergalactic Republician economy, worth 42.7 trillion Credits a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Furniture Restoration. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 70,639 Credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Engineers ask liberal arts majors "Do you want fries with that?", veteran cops reminisce over their heavy armor days, the nation has nearly as many history museums as Grand Intergalactic Republicians, and Little League matches are often attended by riot police with water cannon... just in case. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Grand Intergalactic Republic's national animal is the Glorious Weeflebub, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Grand Intergalactic Republic is ranked 155,999th in the world and 3,678th in The North Pacific for Highest Economic Output, with 42.7 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
