Republic of Kousei

Population172 million


The Republic of Republic of Kousei is a very large, genial nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, national health service, and irreverence towards religion. The hard-working population of 172 million Kouseians 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 relatively small government prioritizes Education, although Welfare, Healthcare, and Administration are also considered important, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 19.1%.

The strong Kouseian economy, worth 10.4 trillion Yen a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Woodchip Exports industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Basket Weaving, and Information Technology. Average income is 60,384 Yen, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.

Elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates, foreign governments are threatened if they so much as mention the word "election", the new 'Who Wants To Be A Politician' election debate auditions are more popular than the debates themselves, and the minority inevitably have their addenda vetoed. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Republic of Kousei's national animal is the Neko, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Republic of Kousei is ranked 68,386th in the world and 2,737th in the South Pacific for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring 2,072.02 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
