Menschliche Vereinigung

Population1.206 billion


The United Socialist States of Menschliche Vereinigung is a massive, orderly nation, renowned for its state-planned economy, anti-smoking policies, and free-roaming dinosaurs. The compassionate, cynical population of 1.206 billion Lidians are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The enormous, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Welfare, Education, and Administration. The average income tax rate is 73.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but underdeveloped Menschliche Vereinigungian economy, worth 49.1 trillion Punktes a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Trout Farming industry, with significant contributions from Tourism and Information Technology. Average income is 40,695 Punktes, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

People of faith are sent to twelve-step programs for 'The Cure', politicians bribe ten-year-old geniuses to sit their aptitude tests, the nation's only university is the School of Hard Knocks, and you can check out of an asylum if you've changed your mind. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Menschliche Vereinigung's national animal is the Luchs, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Menschliche Vereinigung is ranked 275,249th in the world and 6,727th in the Rejected Realms for Largest Publishing Industry, scoring -15.59 on the Bella Potter Productivity e-Index.
