The Armed Republic of NEATHERLANDS is a huge, cultured nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and otherworldly petting zoo. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 339 million NEATHERLANDSians 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 relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 16.5%.
The very strong NEATHERLANDSian economy, worth 28.6 trillion guilders a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is broadly diversified, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Uranium Mining. Average income is 84,311 guilders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 4.2 times as much as the poorest.
The nation has welcomed its expats back with open arms, throwing a sickie is a serious crime, arbitrary election rules are considered sacrosanct, and scientists earn more grant money for reproducing old experiments than trying anything new. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. NEATHERLANDS's national animal is the lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.
