Avanguard city

Population7.694 billion



The Republic of Avanguard city is a colossal, socially progressive nation, renowned for its free-roaming dinosaurs, vat-grown people, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, democratic population of 7.694 billion Avanguard cityians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

The relatively small, liberal, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, with Healthcare, Industry, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense receive no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Robopolis. The average income tax rate is 57.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Avanguard cityian economy, worth a remarkable 1,243 trillion Omega-credits a year, is broadly diversified and dominated by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Soda Sales. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 161,672 Omega-credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Super Barry Brothers is the most popular video game in the nation, third world countries are rich in "I Love Robopolis" t-shirts, Occam's razor has sliced to pieces any childhood belief in Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy, and the nation is stuck in permanent election mode as politicians demand constant do-overs. Crime is totally unknown. Avanguard city's national animal is the cyber-tiger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Avanguard city is ranked 160,777th in the world and 457th in The Communist Bloc for Highest Unexpected Death Rate, scoring 22.56 on the Bus Surprisal Index.
