East Sakhlin

Population403 million



The Commonwealth of East Sakhlin is a huge, orderly nation, remarkable for its sprawling nuclear power plants, keen interest in outer space, and punitive income tax rates. The cynical population of 403 million Ainus are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government prioritizes Defense, although Education, Environment, and Welfare are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk. The average income tax rate is 50.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The very strong East Sakhlinian economy, worth 32.5 trillion Saks a year, is led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 80,720 Saks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.7 times as much as the poorest.

Criminals rejoice in the streets as the entire police force is sent away on a training retreat, student exchange programs are in trouble as everyone wants to leave but no-one wants to come, suit-clad businessmen have been taking advantage of the relaxed welfare qualifications by shopping with food stamps, and soldiers' positions are given away by the glint of their bayonets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. East Sakhlin's national animal is the Bear, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

East Sakhlin is ranked 125,818th in the world and 5,107th in the South Pacific for Most Extensive Civil Rights, with 36.82 Martin Luther King, Jr. Units.
