The Great Librarian

Population19.238 billion



The Literary World of The Great Librarian is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its compulsory vegetarianism, national health service, and complete lack of prisons. The compassionate, democratic population of 19.238 billion Librarians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Social Policy. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Libraropolis. The average income tax rate is 91.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but stagnant The Great Librarian economy, worth 103 trillion Books a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is solely comprised of the Book Publishing industry. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 5,369 Books, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

All news sources are under strict government control, all guns must be registered, elections have become procedural nightmares due to voters persistently rejecting candidates, and the people are famous throughout the region for their bleached-white teeth. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. The Great Librarian's national animal is the Shelver, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

The Great Librarian is ranked 244,753rd in the world and 6th in The Library for Highest Wealthy Incomes, with 5,369 Standard Monetary Units.
