Ever-Wandering Souls

Population10.748 billion



The Fantastic Field Marshal of Ever-Wandering Souls is a gargantuan, cultured nation, notable for its frequent executions, compulsory military service, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 10.748 billion Survivors 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 enormous government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Sanctuary. The average income tax rate is 72.0%.

The strong a Survivor economy, worth 798 trillion Tales a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Tourism industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Arms Manufacturing, and Door-to-door Insurance Sales. Average income is 74,331 Tales, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.9 times as much as the poorest.

The internet has been placed under government control, five-year-olds chanting "Little Miss Muffet" are accused of bullying arachnophobes, truth is often impossible to tell from fiction on the evening news, and supermarket milk is a shear-thickening fluid that can stop small-caliber bullets. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ever-Wandering Souls's national animal is the Mongrel, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Ever-Wandering Souls is ranked 110,230th in the world and 312th in The Black Hawks for Largest Manufacturing Sector, scoring 4,174.24 on the Gooback-Jerbs Productivity Index.
