The Seven Provinces

The Grand Duchy of The Seven Provinces is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Spurdo Spärde with a fair hand, and remarkable for its frequent executions, unlimited-speed roads, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 18.92 billion Seven Provincians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Industry, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality and Defense are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Benishof. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 74.0%.

The frighteningly efficient Seven Provincian economy, worth a remarkable 3,563 trillion colombian flakes a year, is quite specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 188,325 colombian flakes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 557,477 per year while the poor average 49,970, a ratio of 11.2 to 1.

Films are funded in accordance with the volume of tears shed when reading the screenplay, grannies get pulled over for knitting pullovers while driving, drug lords often avoid prison time by teaching "chemistry" classes to underprivileged youth, and paraplegics are told to walk it off. Crime is totally unknown. The Seven Provinces's national animal is the pædobär, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Benism.

The Seven Provinces is ranked 20,927th in the world and 214th in Europe for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 74.01 Effective Tax Rate.
