United Free Lands

Population434 million

The Free Land of United Free Lands is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its enslaved workforce, otherworldly petting zoo, and compulsory military service. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 434 million Landians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Administration, Defense, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Freelandia. The average income tax rate is 48.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The very strong Landian economy, worth 32.6 trillion Bets a year, is led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Woodchip Exports, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 75,059 Bets, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.8 times as much as the poorest.

Puppies given out free in marketing promotions are often tossed straight into the trash, Maxtopians are both starving and giddy after the Landian military unleashed its biological weapons, it is not politically correct to suspect that a serially convicted burglar might steal again, and teams of painters are converting road signs from horse lengths to kilometers. Crime, especially youth-related, is almost non-existent, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. United Free Lands's national animal is the Persian cat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

United Free Lands is ranked 173,328th in the world and 8,149th in The North Pacific for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 624.11 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
