East Capitalistan

Population294 million



The Federal Republic of East Capitalistan is a huge, efficient nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, compulsory military service, and aversion to nipples. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 294 million Capitalistanians are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Xeres. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 7.9%.

The frighteningly efficient East Capitalistanian economy, worth 29.5 trillion Gyuroes a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Retail industry, with major contributions from Gambling, Arms Manufacturing, and Information Technology. Average income is an impressive 100,410 Gyuroes, with the richest citizens earning 7.9 times as much as the poorest.

Celebrity foodies are biting a huge chunk out of the government budget, prematurely retired barristers twitch in anxiety when they talk about their courtroom experiences, the nation is now proudly cholera-free, and there's a politician called Male Infant McAlpin. Crime is a problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. East Capitalistan's national animal is the Gutetamas, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

East Capitalistan is ranked 205,673rd in the world and 396th in Conch Kingdom for Most Rebellious Youth, scoring -8 on the Stark-Dean Displacement Index.
