House 11

Population4.404 billion


The Borderlands of House 11 is a massive, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its ban on automobiles, frequent executions, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed population of 4.404 billion House 11ians are prohibited from doing almost everything except voting, which they do timidly and conservatively.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 33.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The House 11ian economy, worth 237 trillion Fish a year, is fairly diversified and dominated by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Uranium Mining, Tourism, and Basket Weaving. Black market activity is frequent. State-owned companies are common. Average income is 53,820 Fish, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.2 times as much as the poorest.

House 11ians incessantly needle their doctors for relief, mantis shrimp studies is academia's fastest-growing field, the nation's atlases tend to go out of date every few weeks, and misbehaving Poissons deemed dangerous to the public are shot and hanged by the town hall as a warning to others. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. House 11's national animal is the Poisson, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

House 11 is ranked 68,331st in the world and 174th in Devide by Zero for Most Advanced Law Enforcement, scoring 2,306.42 on the Orwell Orderliness Index.
