Identity Crisis

Population4.268 billion


The Republic of Identity Crisis is a massive, cultured nation, renowned for its compulsory military service, ban on automobiles, and disturbing lack of elderly people. The hard-nosed population of 4.268 billion Identity Crisisians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 31.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Identity Crisisian economy, worth 165 trillion kronor a year, is quite specialized and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Tourism, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 38,747 kronor, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Leader's peyote-induced "let's all just be friends" speech is trending world-wide, pharmaceutical companies emphatically promise that "your pills are in the mail" rather than admit any supply shortfall, many friends and relatives of Leader have been given ambassador jobs in tropical island nations, and nobody knows why the caged dove sings. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Identity Crisis's national animal is the dove, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Identity Crisis is ranked 211,159th in the world and 9th in Poll News Network for Most Developed, scoring 47.49 on the Human Development Index.
