Nankyoku Tairiku

Population2.171 billion


CurrencyMinami Yen

The Kingdom of Nankyoku Tairiku is a massive, efficient nation, ruled by 水原高晴 with an even hand, and notable for its smutty television, otherworldly petting zoo, and devotion to social welfare. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 2.171 billion Nankyoku Tairikujins 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Administration, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Nankyo. The average income tax rate is 91.1%.

The frighteningly efficient Nankyoku economy, worth 333 trillion Minami Yen a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 153,777 Minami Yen, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.8 times as much as the poorest.

Bouncers at the door of the sweet shop warn five-year-olds not to cause trouble, priests are being drafted by the church load, grinding bureaucracy has the international wheels of justice turning slowly, and there is a dearth of space for new houses. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Nankyoku Tairiku's national animal is the falcon, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Anglicanism.

Nankyoku Tairiku is ranked 59,236th in the world and 2,426th in the South Pacific for Most Politically Free, scoring 67.52 on the Diebold Election Inking Scale.
