Rocky Beach

Population3.665 billion


The Free Land of Rocky Beach is a massive, socially progressive nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 3.665 billion Rocky Beachians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 14.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The Rocky Beachian economy, worth 184 trillion Kirschkuchens a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Woodchip Exports, and Soda Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 50,214 Kirschkuchens, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.5 times as much as the poorest.

Young children are regularly seen wagering pocket money at blackjack tables, in government offices a hidden killer takes the lives of ministers and civil servants, the government is rumored to hire body doubles whose full-time jobs are to cry at public events, and internet moderator is one of the most popular jobs among the nation's more socially awkward citizens. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent. Rocky Beach's national animal is the Superpapagei, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Rocky Beach is ranked 73,222nd in the world and 14th in Deutschland for Most World Assembly Endorsements, with zero Valid Endorsements.
