Touch The Sky

Population16 million


The Republic of Touch The Sky is a tiny, socially progressive nation, remarkable for its irreverence towards religion and absence of drug laws. The democratic population of 16 million Touch The Skyians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, liberal government prioritizes Defense, with Welfare, Education, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while International Aid and Spirituality receive no funds. The average income tax rate is 22.7%.

The Touch The Skyian economy, worth 540 billion Coins a year, is led by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Woodchip Exports, and Information Technology. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 33,775 Coins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.7 times as much as the poorest.

Autocrats are persona non grata, birds and children's kites are regularly brought down by anti-aircraft fire, CEOs can't hear the term 'Fire Sale' without bursting into tears, and scientists regularly clone human beings for research purposes. Crime is moderate. Touch The Sky's national animal is the Unicorn, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Touch The Sky is ranked 171,442nd in the world and 2,228th in Artificial Solar System for Largest Arms Manufacturing Sector, scoring zero on the Charon Conveyancy Index.
