KV-1 Model 1940

Population283 million


The Armed Republic of KV-1 Model 1940 is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its state-planned economy, restrictive gun laws, and stringent health and safety legislation. The cynical population of 283 million KV-1 Model 1940ians 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 large, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Defense, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 49.9%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but stagnant KV-1 Model 1940ian economy, worth 2.52 trillion Shells 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, quite specialized black market in Soda Sales, Automobile Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Woodchip Exports. 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 8,890 Shells, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. KV-1 Model 1940's national animal is the Tank.

KV-1 Model 1940 is ranked 86,235th in the world and 5th in World Assembly for Safest, scoring 81.54 on the Bubble-Rapp Safety Rating.
