The New Philippine Islands

Population912 million

The Democratic States of The New Philippine Islands is a huge, safe nation, renowned for its daily referendums, state-planned economy, and enforced nudity. The compassionate, democratic population of 912 million Filipinos love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Healthcare, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 40.7%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped a Filipino economy, worth 31.0 trillion pesos 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 slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Beef-Based Agriculture, Book Publishing, Trout Farming, 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 34,020 pesos, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Supervisors in The New Philippine Islands commonly tie bells on their necks to alert employees of their presence, poaching has been on the rise after animals from the nation's zoos were released into the wild, hell is not always other people, and kids are arrested at gunpoint for playing with toy rifles. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The New Philippine Islands's national animal is the philippine eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

The New Philippine Islands is ranked 191,541st in the world and 6,913th in Lazarus for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring -10.1 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
