Amerian States

Population12.884 billion

LeaderDuke Thomas II Klados


The Parliamentary Duchy of Amerian States is a gargantuan, safe nation, ruled by Duke Thomas II Klados with a fair hand, and remarkable for its smutty television, punitive income tax rates, and stringent health and safety legislation. The compassionate, democratic, cheerful population of 12.884 billion Wolffoxians are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

The large, outspoken government prioritizes Education, although Environment, Industry, and Healthcare are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Etern. The average income tax rate is 98.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Wolffoxian economy, worth a remarkable 2,570 trillion Feathertins a year, is highly specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with major contributions from Tourism and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 199,523 Feathertins, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Stealing from a clothesline is a serious offence, space shuttles regularly launch rubbish into space, police officers that upset their bosses get assigned to 24 hour stakeouts of bike sheds, and drunk drivers are sent to rehabilitation paid for by the government. Crime is totally unknown. Amerian States's national animal is the Phoenix, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Eternalism.

Amerian States is ranked 1,654th in the world and 115th in The North Pacific for Most Inclusive, scoring 346.2 on the Mandela-Wollstonecraft Non-Discrimination Index.
