Danubian Peoples

Population1.199 billion

LeaderEmperor Karl I von Habsburg


The Federation of Danubian Peoples is a massive, safe nation, ruled by Emperor Karl I von Habsburg with a fair hand, and remarkable for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.199 billion Danubians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government prioritizes Education, with Welfare, Defense, and Healthcare also on the agenda, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Vienna. The average income tax rate is 28.8%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Danubian economy, worth 70.2 trillion kroner a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is fairly diversified, is led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Tourism, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 58,523 kroner, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

The bonfire of the old paper records can be seen for miles around Vienna, the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one, dubiously qualified East Lebatuckese doctors prescribe ice baths as a treatment for pneumonia, and autocrats are persona non grata. Crime is totally unknown. Danubian Peoples's national animal is the eagle.

Danubian Peoples is ranked 46,824th in the world and 10th in Imperial Entente for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring 1,837.01 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
