District Line 45

Population8.393 billion


The Republic of District Line 45 is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its free-roaming dinosaurs and otherworldly petting zoo. The quiet, industrious population of 8.393 billion District Line 45ians 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 medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Law & Order, and Defense. The average income tax rate is 26.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The District Line 45ian economy, worth 369 trillion guilders a year, is led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Beef-Based Agriculture, Information Technology, and Book Publishing. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 44,000 guilders, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Sneezing pedestrians are grabbed by alley-lurking doctors, the tightness of border controls in District Line 45 leave a little to be desired, party leaders rely on horoscopes to create "ticket balance", and Animal Liberationists are regularly arrested. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. District Line 45's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

District Line 45 is ranked 172,803rd in the world and 5th in Odrya for Smartest Citizens, with 24.87 quips per hour.
