Ezzonin

The Republic of Ezzonin is a huge, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its parental licensing program, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate population of 251 million Ezzoninians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 52.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Ezzoninian economy, worth 9.16 trillion dollars a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Furniture Restoration, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 36,478 dollars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

More money is spent on policing the welfare system for abuse than on the welfare system itself, pilots always remember to send their doctors a Maxxmas card, citizens must pay to enjoy Ezzonin's pristine beaches, and for the sake of 'public interest' news programs tell viewers how to home-make Sarin gas bombs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ezzonin's national animal is the panther, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ezzonin is ranked 183,956th in the world and 5,444th in the Rejected Realms for Most Extreme, scoring 10.75 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
