Elite Card Sales

Population3.653 billion


The Colony of Elite Card Sales is a massive, efficient nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, irreverence towards religion, and complete absence of social welfare. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 3.653 billion traders enjoy some of the most opulent lifestyles in the region, unless they are unemployed or working-class, in which case they are variously starving to death or crippled by easily preventable diseases.

The minute, liberal, pro-business government, or what there is of one, prioritizes Defense, with Industry, Healthcare, and Administration also on the agenda, while Spirituality and International Aid are ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 4.7%.

The thriving Elite economy, worth 246 trillion Credits a year, is driven almost entirely by the private sector, which is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with major contributions from Door-to-door Insurance Sales, Book Publishing, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 67,377 Credits, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 238,496 per year while the poor average 13,743, a ratio of 17.4 to 1.

Crime is a major problem, probably because of the absence of a police force. Elite Card Sales's national animal is the Cobra, which can occasionally be seen sifting through garbage in the nation's cities.

Elite Card Sales is ranked 126,139th in the world and 10th in Outer Space for Smartest Citizens, with 29.28 quips per hour.
