Ketathinamiri Islands

Population246 million


The Republic of Ketathinamiri Islands is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, daily referendums, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate population of 246 million Ketathinamiri Islandsians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 66.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but sluggish Ketathinamiri Islandsian economy, worth 6.06 trillion guilders a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is mostly made up of the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery, Information Technology, and Soda Sales. Average income is 24,642 guilders, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Diplomatic missions typically end with a flurry of childish insults, accusations and phlegm, high-income earners pay a 100% tax rate, Ketathinamiri Islands's heavy congestion charges are the bane of motorists' lives, and funerals are often rudely interrupted by juggling clowns shouting for volunteers from the audience. Crime is totally unknown. Ketathinamiri Islands's national animal is the falcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Ketathinamiri Islands is ranked 133,582nd in the world and 5,303rd in the South Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -5.83 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
