City States Nation

Population14.113 billion

LeaderJR Ewing


The Confederacy of City States Nation is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by JR Ewing with an even hand, and renowned for its rum-swilling pirates, frequent executions, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 14.113 billion City Staters have some civil rights, but not too many, enjoy the freedom to spend their money however they like, to a point, and take part in free and open elections, although not too often.

The minute, corrupt government, or what there is of one, juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Reading. Income tax is unheard of.

The frighteningly efficient City States Nationian economy, worth a remarkable 5,700 trillion Lire a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Gambling. Average income is an amazing 403,924 Lire, with the richest citizens earning 6.9 times as much as the poorest.

Entire families are dragged into counseling whenever children fight on a playground, a stocking with a crooked seam or a tie without a full Windsor knot are grounds for instant dismissal, CSN-SPAN viewership drops as MPs act their age, and ships are encouraged to deliberately run aground onto City States Nationian beaches. Crime is all-pervasive, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. City States Nation's national animal is the Armadillo, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Industrialism.

City States Nation is ranked 208,212th in the world and 8,486th in the South Pacific for Safest, scoring 3.6 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
