Selinoz

Population296 million

The Community of Selinoz is a huge, safe nation, notable for its rum-swilling pirates, anti-smoking policies, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 296 million Selinozians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, liberal, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Education, Welfare, and Environment. The average income tax rate is 54.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Selinozian economy, worth 16.4 trillion Binks a year, is quite specialized and dominated by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Cheese Exports, Book Publishing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 55,338 Binks, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The installation of street lights across remote goat tracks has left citizens bemused, no cul-de-sac or trailer park is complete without a gambling parlor, the tinfoil-hat crowd also recommend tinfoil wallets, and families are left homeless as entire suburbs are bulldozed on the whim of tribal chiefs. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Selinoz's national animal is the Sloth, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Selinoz is ranked 241,821st in the world and 1,091st in 10000 Islands for Largest Retail Industry, scoring -9.06 on the Shrinkwrap Consignment Productivity Index.
