City States Nation

Population15.541 billion

LeaderJR Ewing


The Union of City States Nation is a gargantuan, cultured nation, ruled by JR Ewing with an even hand, and notable for its museums and concert halls, deadly medical pandemics, and infamous sell-swords. The hard-nosed, hard-working, humorless, devout population of 15.541 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 6,262 trillion Lire a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Book Publishing, and Gambling. Black market activity is frequent. Average income is an amazing 402,960 Lire, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.3 times as much as the poorest.

International commentators accuse the nation of aggressive cultural imperialism, bizarre-looking creatures called 'Armadillodogs' dominate wildlife preserves, shanty towns are forming in the suburbs of major cities, and the unofficial motto of the nation's intelligence agency is "in Bont we trust". Crime is 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 38,733rd in the world and 1,245th in the South Pacific for Most Advanced Public Education, scoring 4,214.82 on the Edu-tellignce® Test Score.
