The Humble Nation of True Prosperity is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Jaren Crist with a fair hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, smutty television, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 14.33 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 95.0%.

The frighteningly efficient True Prosperitan economy, worth a remarkable 1,622 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 113,258 Dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Foreign policy is to avoid standing up to bullies, the nation's taxpayers pay for foreign government's extravagances, people accuse the government of being in bed with Big Safety, and the richest individuals apparently buy nothing but noodles and toilet paper. 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 8,517th in the world and 449th in Lazarus for Most Developed, scoring 90.76 on the Human Development Index.
