Horizon 22

Population3.131 billion

LeaderLuka Volkov


The People's Republic of Horizon 22 is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Luka Volkov with an iron fist, and renowned for its rampant corporate plagiarism, pith helmet sales, and flagrant waste-dumping. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical population of 3.131 billion Horizonians 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 medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Industry, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Moscow. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 70.9%.

The frighteningly efficient Horizonian economy, worth 468 trillion Rubles a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Information Technology, Retail, and Book Publishing. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is an impressive 149,601 Rubles, with the richest citizens earning 7.8 times as much as the poorest.

Scorched earth tactics have left many a noble estate in smoldering ruins, voting is compulsory, television executives are interested in turning Luka Volkov's zany home life into a sitcom, and drivers are told they're not staring at mobile phone screens enough. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Horizon 22's national animal is the Eagle, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Atheism.

Horizon 22 is ranked 9,857th in the world and 5th in Union of Liberal Nations for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring 10,974.4 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
