The Broken Gate

Population152 million


The Constitutional Monarchy of The Broken Gate is a very large, safe nation, renowned for its compulsory military service and irreverence towards religion. The quiet, industrious population of 152 million Gate Keepers 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 large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 43.0%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Broken Gatean economy, worth 5.64 trillion bolts a year, is led by the Cheese Exports industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Trout Farming. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 37,124 bolts, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Spoiler warnings are now given out before political speeches, young girls and senior citizens alike can be spotted wearing colourful short shorts, on graduation day the hats thrown in the air fly high enough to stun passing pigeons, and same-sex marriages are increasingly common. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Broken Gate's national animal is the panther, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Broken Gate is ranked 123,934th in the world and 4,525th in the South Pacific for Most Developed, scoring 49.39 on the Human Development Index.
