Confederation of the Equator

Population4.817 billion



The Steaming Hot Caatinga of Confederation of the Equator is a massive, efficient nation, notable for its compulsory military service, complete lack of public education, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, devout population of 4.817 billion Equatorians are rabid consumers, partly through choice and partly because the government tells them to and dissenters tend to vanish from their homes at night.

The relatively small government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Recife. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.7%.

The very strong Equatorian economy, worth 333 trillion cruzadoes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Gambling industry, with significant contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Soda Sales, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 69,154 cruzadoes, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 209,026 per year while the poor average 17,814, a ratio of 11.7 to 1.

Rural communities are all but disenfranchised as politicians focus all their attention on winning the deciding urban votes, the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, Leader has just been declared ruler of Confederation of the Equator in an international press conference, and statue-sitting has replaced the stake-out as the dullest form of police duty. Crime, especially youth-related, is a problem. Confederation of the Equator's national animal is the snake.

Confederation of the Equator is ranked 144,368th in the world and 2nd in A sozera for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -7.07 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
