Fellow Worker

Population8.467 billion


The Commonwealth of Fellow Worker is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, irreverence towards religion, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 8.467 billion Fellow Workerians are ruled with an iron fist by the socialist government, which grants its people the freedom to do whatever they like so long as it doesn't involve getting richer than anybody else or challenging the government.

The large, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Law & Order, and Education. The average income tax rate is 48.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant Fellow Workerian economy, worth 80.2 trillion kronor 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 slick, highly efficient, quite specialized black market in Trout Farming, Basket Weaving, Information Technology, and Cheese Exports. 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 9,471 kronor, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Fellow Worker's national animal is the gyrfalcon, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Fellow Worker is ranked 29,139th in the world and 2nd in The Federation of Anarchist Communes for Most Extreme, scoring 33.9 on the Paul-Nader Subjective Decentrality Index.
