Socialist Test 279

The Dictatorship of Socialist Test 279 is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its compulsory military service, ritual sacrifices, and zero percent divorce rate. The hard-nosed population of 677 million Socialist Test 279ians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The large, corrupt, moralistic government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. The average income tax rate is 53.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Socialist Test 279ian economy, worth 41.8 trillion Deneroes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, fairly diversified black market in Tourism, Soda Sales, Automobile Manufacturing, and Cheese Exports. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 61,786 Deneroes, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Women who walk into the ladies' changing room are accused of being Peeping Toms, Socialist Test 279ian politicians are often described as having more style than substance, politicians spend more time in courtrooms than in Parliament, and bands of paramedics walk the streets looking for suspicious medical activity. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Socialist Test 279's national animal is the Black Widow.

Socialist Test 279 is ranked 71,690th in the world and 3,044th in The North Pacific for Most Influential, scoring 247 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
