Territopia

Population178 million

AnimalTerrific Terry

The Empire of Territopia is a very large, safe nation, remarkable for its daily referendums, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate population of 178 million Territopians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government prioritizes Education, with Welfare, Healthcare, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 46.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Territopian economy, worth 6.99 trillion Terrymarks a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Book Publishing, and Pizza Delivery. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 39,245 Terrymarks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The nation's atlases tend to go out of date every few weeks, referenda can be called for any law at the request of at least one third of the voting population, knitters are arrested for carrying needles in their bags, and the nation's forests are full of treasure hunters in military-grade survival gear. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Territopia's national animal is the Terrific Terry, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Territopia is ranked 122,313th in the world and 141st in Yggdrasil for Most Pro-Market, scoring 28.38 on the Rand Index.
