Greater Konigsberg

Population19.508 billion



The Empire of Greater Konigsberg is a gargantuan, cultured nation, notable for its smutty television, rampant corporate plagiarism, and frequent executions. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 19.508 billion Greater Konigsbergians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The tiny, outspoken government is primarily concerned with Education, with Industry and Environment also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Social Policy are ignored. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Mittelhufen. The average income tax rate is 4.7%.

The frighteningly efficient Greater Konigsbergian economy, worth a remarkable 4,035 trillion thalers a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Tourism, Book Publishing, and Automobile Manufacturing. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an amazing 206,884 thalers, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.2 times as much as the poorest.

Lawyers turn down litigation cases and corporate work in order to focus on lucrative public defence work, earthquake sirens are a leading cause of hearing loss, toy versions of heroin paraphernalia let kids pretend to be their favourite TV characters, and rich people sell their mansions to pay for endless rows of mobile homes. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Greater Konigsberg's national animal is the eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies.

Greater Konigsberg is ranked 4,595th in the world and 203rd in Osiris for Most Scientifically Advanced, scoring 540.32 on the Kurzweil Singularity Index.
