Avanguard city

Population10.569 billion



The Republic of Avanguard city is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its museums and concert halls, irreverence towards religion, and absence of drug laws. The compassionate, hard-working, democratic population of 10.569 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 medium-sized, liberal, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Healthcare, Industry, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Defense aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Robopolis. The average income tax rate is 71.4%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Avanguard cityian economy, worth a remarkable 1,554 trillion Omega-credits a year, is fairly diversified and mostly made up of the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing and Tourism. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 147,116 Omega-credits, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Students are wary of colorfully decorated new teachers with names like Professor Pipsqueak, a favorite "life hack" for gap year backpackers is to pretend to be homeless for government handouts, for some reason the census focuses on daily banana ingestion and hourly quip rate, and disability advocates are not amused that they are told to be dependent on Avanguard cityians's kindness. 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 7,606th in the world and 69th in The Communist Bloc for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 13,911.89 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
