We welcome The Free Land of The Independant World (http://www.sunsetrpg.com/economystatistics.php?nation=The+Independant+World), as the 159th member nation state in 01 Eastern Roman Empire Region.
The Free Land of The Independant World is a tiny, environmentally stunning nation, notable for its compulsory military service. Its compassionate population of 6 million are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.
The government -- a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked morass -- devotes most of its attentions to Social Welfare, with areas such as Law & Order and Religion & Spirituality receiving almost no funds by comparison. The average income tax rate is 38%, but much higher for the wealthy. A substantial private sector is led by the Soda Sales industry, followed by Pizza Delivery and Book Publishing.
Elections have been outlawed. Crime -- especially youth-related -- is totally unknown. The Independant World's national animal is the monkey, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its currency is the pound.
