Charles Vernon

Population12.118 billion


The Queen's State of Charles Vernon is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, democratic population of 12.118 billion Charles Vernonians 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 enormous, liberal, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Public Transport, Defense, and Law & Order. The average income tax rate is 51.5%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but underdeveloped Charles Vernonian economy, worth 205 trillion betales a year, is quite specialized and led by the Furniture Restoration industry, with major contributions from Automobile Manufacturing and Beef-Based Agriculture. Black market activity is notable. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 16,937 betales, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Voting is voluntary and high-income earners pay a 100% tax rate. Crime is almost non-existent, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Charles Vernon's national animal is the deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Charles Vernon is ranked 136,517th in the world and 6th in Libertaria for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 4.47 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
