Cape Vessey

Population5.097 billion

LeaderPresident Reeves


The Commonwealth of Cape Vessey is a colossal, efficient nation, ruled by President Reeves with a fair hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and punitive income tax rates. The compassionate, democratic population of 5.097 billion Vessians hold their civil and political rights very dear, although the wealthy and those in business tend to be viewed with suspicion.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, liberal government stops and the rest of society begins, but it prioritizes Education, although Environment, Healthcare, and Administration are also considered important. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Havarti. The average income tax rate is 87.2%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The all-consuming Cape Vesseyian economy, worth 354 trillion buttons a year, is driven almost entirely by government activity, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is highly specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery and Tourism. State-owned companies are the norm. Average income is 69,584 buttons, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.9 times as much as the poorest.

Turning eighteen is often referred to as the 'Age of Aquarius', noble feuds don't end until one side gets their point across, hay has been added to school cafeteria menus, and games of cops and robbers typically end in at least one fatal shooting. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Cape Vessey's national animal is the goat, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Cape Vessey is ranked 20,647th in the world and 342nd in 10000 Islands for Most Developed, scoring 82.3 on the Human Development Index.
