La Costa Dorada

Population2.61 billion

CapitalLa Ciudad Dorada
LeaderSantiago García


The Golden Republic of La Costa Dorada is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Santiago García with an even hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 2.61 billion La Costa Doradans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of La Ciudad Dorada. The average income tax rate is 84.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Doradanian economy, worth 287 trillion Pesos 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 dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. Average income is an impressive 110,161 Pesos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The government spends millions of Pesos every year prosecuting spammers, school football matches are usually five-a-side, misbehaving Kangaroos deemed dangerous to the public are shot and hanged by the town hall as a warning to others, and singing in public is only allowed if you are singing the praise of the Motherland. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. La Costa Dorada's national animal is the Kangaroo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Catholicism.

La Costa Dorada is ranked 11,416th in the world and 277th in The East Pacific for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 10,022.82 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
