Down Unian

Population5.218 billion

LeaderDem Kartic


The Unianist Republic of Down Unian is a colossal, orderly nation, ruled by Dem Kartic with an iron fist, and notable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, keen interest in outer space, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 5.218 billion Unians are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Tarpar. The average income tax rate is 49.5%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The strong Down Unianian economy, worth 408 trillion Woods a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a large, well-organized, broadly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Door-to-door Insurance Sales, and Uranium Mining. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 78,269 Woods, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People can't decide between preserving forests and buying print copies of 'Dogman Versus The Giggler', nudity is frowned upon, helium balloons lift the nation's spacecraft towards the heavens, and 100-year-old politicians are now a thing of the past. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Down Unian's national animal is the Lion, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Down Unian is ranked 216,125th in the world and 13th in Laraniem for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.72 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
