La diosa Hera

Population2.054 billion



The Matriarchy of La diosa Hera is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Hera with an even hand, and remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, vat-grown people, and compulsory military service. The compassionate population of 2.054 billion AfrodisÃacos are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Olimpia. The average income tax rate is 80.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient afrodisíaco economy, worth 310 trillion Dracmas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is an impressive 151,047 Dracmas, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Parents are shocked to find out that having kids costs money, cheap textbooks have replaced coasters at college ragers, computers have been put in control of the economy to keep computers from controlling the economy, and Hera's handshakes with opposition leaders usually lead to thumb wars. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. La diosa Hera's national animal is the Peacock, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Grecorromana.

La diosa Hera is ranked 140,457th in the world and 6,837th in The North Pacific for Lowest Overall Tax Burden, scoring -156.18 on the Hayek Index.
