Romanticists and Poets

Population4.171 billion



The Community of Romanticists and Poets is a massive, efficient nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, unlimited-speed roads, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic population of 4.171 billion Romanticists and Poets hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Baltimore. The average income tax rate is 67.7%.

The all-consuming Romantic and Poetic economy, worth 353 trillion poems a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Retail. Average income is 84,774 poems, with the richest citizens earning 5.1 times as much as the poorest.

Psychiatrists bizarrely accompany Leader to meetings with foreign heads of state, the people of Romanticists and Poets are renowned for their nihilistic attitudes, no one believes anything until it has been strenuously tested and peer-reviewed, and mollycoddled youths run the country. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Romanticists and Poets's national animal is the raven, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
