Overview People Government Economy Rank Trend

The 11th of July of 1302 is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by De Leeuw van Vlaanderen with an even hand, and notable for its state-planned economy, smutty television, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, devout population of 11.594 billion 1302ians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The government — a sprawling, bureaucracy-choked, socially-minded morass — juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Environment. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Groeninghe Couter. The average income tax rate is 87.1%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The 1302ian economy, worth 686 trillion Euros a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is mostly made up of the Book Publishing industry. Average income is 59,193 Euros, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The mining industry has taken a hit from tighter environmental regulations, there's a shortage of swinging hot spots as land development grinds to a halt, public nudity is compulsory, and conductors wield diamond-encrusted batons to fit in with their freshly gilded surroundings. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. 1302's national animal is the lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Heilige Godelieve van Gistel.

1302 is ranked 46,278th in the world and 72nd in Vlaanderen for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 2,282.08 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
