Your Imaginary Friend

Population5.719 billion



The Questionable Existence of Your Imaginary Friend is a colossal, cultured nation, ruled by GOP with an even hand, and remarkable for its daily referendums, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed population of 5.719 billion Your Imaginary Friends have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of LND. The average income tax rate is 58.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Your Imaginary Friendian economy, worth 386 trillion florins a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is dominated by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Automobile Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Average income is 67,613 florins, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.4 times as much as the poorest.

Citizens are exhausted from weekly general elections, the government merely sends empty platitudes whenever natural disasters strike foreign nations, most voters only see their chosen representative visit once every election cycle, and students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Your Imaginary Friend's national animal is the kangaroo, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Simplicity.

Your Imaginary Friend is ranked 148,456th in the world and 5,434th in Lazarus for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -8.94 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
