Excelsior Commune

Population139 million


The United Socialist States of Excelsior Commune is a very large, orderly nation, remarkable for its avowedly heterosexual populace, punitive income tax rates, and devotion to social welfare. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 139 million Excelsiors 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 large, corrupt, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Healthcare, Education, and Welfare also on the agenda, while Spirituality is ignored. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 66.3%.

The Communist economy, worth 8.65 trillion ammunitions 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, quite specialized black market in Trout Farming, Beef-Based Agriculture, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. 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 62,201 ammunitions, with the richest citizens earning 5.9 times as much as the poorest.

The only position a woman can hold is baby-maker, the police force is rumoured to be made up of evil shadows with no souls, naturists are jailed regularly for indecent exposure, and military doctrine says not to open fire until you see the "beady little eyes" of Johnny Foreigner. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Excelsior Commune's national animal is the bear, which is also the nation's favorite main course.

Excelsior Commune is ranked 94,208th in the world and 22nd in Grand Abbeyverne Republic for Most Developed, scoring 57.45 on the Human Development Index.
