Irani Figueria

Population2.017 billion


The Colony of Irani Figueria is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 2.017 billion Irani Figuerians are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The minute, pro-business government, or what there is of one, is dominated by the Department of Defense, although Industry, Healthcare, and Law & Order are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.7%.

The thriving Irani Figuerian economy, worth 141 trillion Distrols a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Gambling, and Automobile Manufacturing. Average income is 70,147 Distrols, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 248,299 per year while the poor average 14,308, a ratio of 17.4 to 1.

Citizens are enjoying a recent large cut in taxes, the country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, and politicians look weirdly alike. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Irani Figueria's national animal is the Falcon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Irani Figueria is ranked 40,439th in the world and 20th in CISB for Largest Information Technology Sector, scoring 7,583.11 on the Fann-Boi Productivity Index.
