    The Free Land of Pendarlon
    "Only the free children shall kindle the crown"

    Civil Rights: Below Average
    Economy: Reasonable
    Political Freedoms: Superb

    "The Free Land of Pendarlon is a tiny, devout nation, notable for its burgeoning lion population. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 5 million 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 large, corrupt government is effectively ruled by the Department of Religion & Spirituality, with areas such as Social Welfare and Law & Order receiving almost no funds by comparison. The average income tax rate is 24%, but much higher for the wealthy. A substantial private sector is led by the Woodchip Exports industry, followed by Trout Farming and Book Publishing.

    Crime is a problem, and the police force struggles against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Pendarlon's national animal is the lion and its currency is the avaric."

    Location: The East Pacific
    The People's Republic of Expressions is a tiny, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its compulsory military service. Its hard-nosed, intelligent population of 6 million 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 concentrates mainly on Law & Order, although Defence and Healthcare are secondary priorities. The average income tax rate is 31%, but much higher for the wealthy. A tiny private sector is dominated by the Gambling industry.

    Voting is voluntary. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is relatively low, thanks to a well-funded police force. Expressions's national animal is the white tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the hoop.

    The Kingdom of Great Huntroyde is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its devotion to social welfare. Its compassionate, hard-working population of 639 million are either ruled by a small, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

    It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, pro-business government stops and the rest of society begins, but it concentrates mainly on Education, although Social Welfare and Public Transport are on the agenda. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 64%. A powerhouse of a private sector is led by the Information Technology industry, followed by Gambling and Arms Manufacturing.

    X-Files ratings have hit an all-time low, drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government, only "organics" are permitted to be citizens, and pharmacies close down as medicinal drugs are sold freely by the government. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Great Huntroyde's national animal is the Spotted Platypus, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the groat.

    Great Huntroyde is ranked 70th in the region and 35,778th in the world for Largest Soda Pop Sector.

    The Borderlands of Teacake is a tiny, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its compulsory military service. Its compassionate, cynical population of 5 million are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

    The large government juggles the competing demands of Defence, Healthcare, and Social Welfare. The average income tax rate is 28%, but much higher for the wealthy. A small private sector is dominated by the Woodchip Exports industry.

    Crime -- especially youth-related -- is relatively low. Teacake's national animal is the wombat and its currency is the queudrue.

    The Dominion of McDougall
    "Muhahahahahahahahahahaha!!! !!"


    UN Category: New York Times Democracy
    Civil Rights:
    Below Average
    Economy:
    Very Strong
    Political Freedoms:
    Superb

    Location: the Pacific

    The Dominion of McDougall is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its burgeoning womble population. Its compassionate, hard-working, intelligent population of 254 million 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 large government is mainly concerned with Education, although Healthcare and Commerce are secondary priorities. The average income tax rate is 27%, but much higher for the wealthy. A substantial private sector is led by the Arms Manufacturing, Gambling, and Information Technology industries.

    Government officials frequently cut taxes as a distraction from antics with their secretaries, the Supreme Court protects civil rights and the right to privacy vehemently, schools have extensive counseling programs for troubled students, and the alarmingly racist TV show 'Bigtopians Say the Darndest Things' is a hit. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is relatively low. McDougall's national animal is the womble, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its currency is the dingaling.

    McDougall is ranked 2856th in the region and 57,374th in the world for Largest Soda Pop Sector.

    The Republic of Blissy is a tiny, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its absence of drug laws. Its compassionate, intelligent population of 5 million are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

    The enormous government is mainly concerned with Religion & Spirituality, although Education and Healthcare are on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 32%, but much higher for the wealthy. A tiny private sector is dominated by the Retail industry.

    Crime -- especially youth-related -- is relatively low. Blissy's national animal is the donkey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the franc.

    The Republic of Arcticalia
    "As Cold As Ice"


    UN Category: Inoffensive Centrist Democracy
    Civil Rights:
    Below Average Economy:
    Very Strong Political Freedoms:
    Very Good

    Location: The East Pacific
    The Republic of Arcticalia is a large, safe nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape. Its hard-nosed, hard-working, intelligent population of 40 million 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Education, Law & Order, and Social Welfare. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 16%. A healthy private sector is led by the Book Publishing, Uranium Mining, and Retail industries.

    The wearing and manufacture of fur apparel is banned, graffiti artists spend lengthy periods of time in jail, protesters are up in arms over new nuclear power stations, and the latest Harry Potter book is a bestseller. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is relatively low, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Arcticalia's national animal is the ice bear, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation, and its currency is the winterdollar.

    Arcticalia is ranked 1195th in the region and 25,719th in the world for Largest Soda Pop Sector.

    Blimey, I'm ranked "Inoffensive centrist democracy"!!! :eek: Time for some tax cuts
