The Place Holder of Vultopia is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by The Founder with an even hand, and renowned for its museums and concert halls, anti-smoking policies, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 10.076 billion Vultopians have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.
The relatively small, corrupt government is primarily concerned with Defense, although Education, Law & Order, and Industry are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Moonside. The average income tax rate is 20.2%.
The all-consuming Vultopian economy, worth a remarkable 1,440 trillion Bits a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, and Trout Farming. Black market activity is notable. Average income is an impressive 142,973 Bits, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.7 times as much as the poorest.
The commercialisation of highly deadly weapons has instilled Vultopia with a very polite populace, the army lures cannon fodder with promises of a college education, senior citizens are often found slaving away in factories, and auditors are gutting every governmental department. Crime is totally unknown. Vultopia's national animal is the Flying Fox, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.
