House 143

Population246 million


The Republic of House 143 is a huge, orderly nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 246 million House 143ians are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 57.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant House 143ian economy, worth 1.68 trillion chips a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient black market in Retail, Furniture Restoration, Information Technology, and Beef-Based Agriculture. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 6,814 chips, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. House 143's national animal is the Vinny, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

House 143 is ranked 130,790th in the world and 288th in Switz for Most Influential, scoring 14 on the Soft Power Disbursement Rating.
