Thomas M Cole

Population21.036 billion


The Free Land of Thomas M Cole is a gargantuan, safe nation, remarkable for its compulsory military service and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 21.036 billion Thomas M Coleans are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Healthcare, and Education. The average income tax rate is 58.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Thomas M Colean economy, worth 665 trillion buddhas a year, is quite specialized and led by the Beef-Based Agriculture industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Cheese Exports, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 31,630 buddhas, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.0 times as much as the poorest.

Voting is voluntary. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Thomas M Cole's national animal is the seahorse.

Thomas M Cole is ranked 78,165th in the world and 1st in The Pure Land for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 1,793.14 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.

Largest Populations: 5,658th
