Gotham Metropolis NSU

Population91 million


The Federal Republic of Gotham Metropolis NSU is a large, efficient nation, renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, irreverence towards religion, and suspicion of poets. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 91 million Gothamites are effectively ruled by a group of massive corporations, who run for political office and provide their well-off citizens with world-class goods and services. Their poorer citizens, however, are mostly starving to death while being urged to go out and get real jobs. The populace has reasonably extensive civil rights, although these are mostly aimed at allowing them to buy whatever they like.

The tiny, pro-business, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Industry. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 8.2%.

The thriving Gotham Metropolis NSUian economy, worth 5.93 trillion Dollars a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Automobile Manufacturing, Arms Manufacturing, and Gambling. Average income is 65,215 Dollars, but there is a significant disparity between incomes, with the richest 10% of citizens earning 202,456 per year while the poor average 16,168, a ratio of 12.5 to 1.

The government awards prizes to television shows featuring stereotype-breaking minority roles, euthanasia is legal, directors of low-budget sci-fi films are flocking to use Gotham Metropolis NSU City as a backdrop, and pet owners exercise their Bats at a snail's pace or risk prosecution. Crime is a problem. Gotham Metropolis NSU's national animal is the Bat, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Gotham Metropolis NSU is ranked 122,966th in the world and 176th in Texas for Highest Economic Output, with 5.93 trillion Standard Monetary Units.
