Free Republics

Population15.791 billion

LeaderConsuls Hellstrom and Izmailov


The Federation of Free Republics is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Consuls Hellstrom and Izmailov with an even hand, and notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, infamous sell-swords, and keen interest in outer space. The hard-nosed, hard-working population of 15.791 billion Republicans are either ruled by a sleek, efficient government or a conglomerate of multinational corporations; it's difficult to tell which.

The tiny, pro-business government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Industry, and Law & Order. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Republica. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 6.6%.

The frighteningly efficient Republican economy, worth a remarkable 1,291 trillion Thalers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Retail, Arms Manufacturing, and Tourism. Average income is 81,792 Thalers, but there is a large disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 416,909 per year while the poor average 8,850, a ratio of 47.1 to 1.

Consuls Hellstrom and Izmailov can often be seen hanging around playgrounds chatting with the kids, psychiatrists bizarrely accompany Consuls Hellstrom and Izmailov to meetings with foreign heads of state, babies are increasingly seen as a luxury, and competing private ambulances racing to be the first to traffic accidents are a major cause of road accidents. Crime, especially youth-related, is a major problem, with the police force struggling against a lack of funding and a high mortality rate. Free Republics's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Free Republics is ranked 3,469th in the world and 1st in Federation of Free Republics for Highest Crime Rates, with 25.07 Crimes Per Hour.
