New Decius

Population11.362 billion

LeaderKaiser Friedrich IV


The Vers Galactic Empire of New Decius is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by Kaiser Friedrich IV with an even hand, and remarkable for its flagrant waste-dumping, enslaved workforce, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, humorless population of 11.362 billion Versians are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The large, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Berlin. The average income tax rate is 88.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Versian economy, worth a remarkable 1,557 trillion Papiermarks a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, and Woodchip Exports. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 137,043 Papiermarks, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.1 times as much as the poorest.

Stealing from a clothesline is a serious offence, friendly fire incidents usually result in severe burns, the military recognizes no difference between male and female soldiers, and tech-mad citizens think that the laser-powered bread-slicer uPhone App is the coolest thing since sliced bread. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. New Decius's national animal is the Eagle, which soars majestically through the nation's famously clear skies, and its national religion is Secularized.

New Decius is ranked 144,861st in the world and 825th in Europe for Largest Furniture Restoration Industry, scoring -6 on the Spitz-Pollish Productivity Index.
