Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The Confederacy of Vulshain is a gargantuan, genial nation, ruled by King Samuil Rainard with an even hand, and notable for its public floggings, daily referendums, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful, devout population of 13.242 billion Vulshainians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The tiny, socially-minded government juggles the competing demands of Education, Defense, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Kitsuniva. The average income tax rate is 7.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Vulshainian economy, worth a remarkable 2,161 trillion blue riyals a year, is fairly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Book Publishing, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 163,220 blue riyals, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Many aides in King Samuil Rainard's office are known to be serial jaywalkers, police drones follow every suspected Peeping Tom, teenage male videogamers often suffer repetitive strain wrist injuries, and ratings for sitcom reruns are often much higher than election debates. Crime is totally unknown. Vulshain's national animal is the fox and wolf, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Celiam Methodism.

Vulshain is ranked 6,424th in the world and 165th in The East Pacific for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 297.83 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
