The Humble Nation of True Prosperity is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by Jaren Crist with a fair hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, ban on automobiles, and digital currency. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 12.82 billion Comarades 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Pretentious Centre. The average income tax rate is 94.6%.

The frighteningly efficient True Prosperitan economy, worth a remarkable 1,453 trillion Dollars a year, is highly specialized and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 113,367 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

In musicals everybody's a little bit racist, foreign policy is to avoid standing up to bullies, the nation's taxpayers pay for foreign government's extravagances, and people accuse the government of being in bed with Big Safety. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. True Prosperity's national animal is the Black Jaguar, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

True Prosperity is ranked 164,669th in the world and 6,934th in Lazarus for Largest Gambling Industry, scoring -16.19 on the Kelly Criterion Productivity Index.
