Broader Confederate States

Population772 million



The Confederacy of Broader Confederate States is a huge, socially progressive nation, notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, keen interest in outer space, and ubiquitous missile silos. The hard-nosed, hard-working, devout population of 772 million Confederates enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Public Transport, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Columbia. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.8%.

The strong Dixie economy, worth 52.1 trillion dollars a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Woodchip Exports, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 67,471 dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 195,720 per year while the poor average 18,420, a ratio of 10.6 to 1.

Ethnic minorities are often refused admission to some of the nation's best schools, t-shirts displaying a photo of Leader performing the Full-Monty are selling out, protestors are soaking piles of dollars in blood to make a point about government incomes, and members of ethnic minorities are more often called "boy" or "girl" than by their actual names. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Broader Confederate States's national animal is the rattlesnake, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Broader Confederate States is ranked 24,812th in the world and 9th in The Moderate Alliance for Largest Automobile Manufacturing Sector, scoring 4,379.23 on the Henry Ford Productivity Index.
